ABOUT THE ARTIST
“One of the things I love about coiling is that I feel like I am working with the materials. Pine needle baskets have their own “voice.” I may start out with a definite plan, but eventually the materials tell me what they want to do, and the final product feels like a collaboration. As a pine needle artisan, my goal is to work with a variety of natural materials and textures to create a surprising work of art which can be both practical and transporting.”
