Single-hoop, four-legged rib basket of akebia
I enjoy making useful and visually interesting objects out of surplus, unwanted, or undervalued materials that might otherwise be discarded. A short while ago I began weaving baskets, after attending a natural basketry workshop. Currently, I use fibers such as corn husk (collected from urban green markets) and akebia (an unwelcome guest in a friend's backyard) to explore my passion for this art form.
