Terrain was inspired by hiking southwestern desert slot canyons. It is a sculptural vessel designed to mimic the undulations of sandstone formations. Constructed of spring twine and waxed linen, it incorporates multiple twining techniques and a Mountain Ash root embellishment at the rim.

Creating a sculptural vessel is a process of discovery. I begin with an idea and explore different ways to achieve my vision. I take risks as I explore new concepts, some of which challenge traditional construction methods. I am always wondering “What will happen if……” I combine materials and processes, going beyond the ordinary, to give the unexpected to the usual. Each vessel evolves as I manipulate the fibers and its beauty is revealed. It is gratifying to bring something from my imagination into this world. I am following a unique trail and am enjoying this journey!
