Grapevine Basket

Grapevine, Reed, Cane

10 x 19 x 18"

$95


The natural grapevine of the rim and handle have too much beauty for me to enclose and cover with the reed weavers. I like to design the basket so that some parts of the vines remain outside the traditional basket shape and expand the overall form of the piece.

 

Artist Statement:

I have worked with baskets and wood as a hobby for most of my adult life. Now in retirement I am able to truly focus on stretching my skills and creativity full time.
Each piece of reed, grapevine, and wood was alive at one time breathing in its own ways. And for me there is still life in it. My goal is for each piece that I use to inspire me to create shapes and forms baskets, wood turnings, sculpture, and pieces of furniture - that allow the material's natural beauty to be seen, touched and appreciated by all who look at it.
