I’m experimenting with creating vessels which are inspired by views of nature. These baskets are traditional rag baskets made with tiny strips of cloth sewn over a core.
So this basket inspired by Emperor Penguins first appeared.
I love the look of canola fields in bloom in Manitoba.
Then I was inspired by famous works of art. Starry Night by Vincent Van Gough.
And finally Claude Monet’s San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk.
These turned out so well, and SOLD, that I’ll make more next winter.
