basketBOWL and BIRDnest forms 2001-2012

The exhibition of basket forms at JCC Patio Gallery are woven in rattan, honeysuckle and akebia vine. Based on the sphere and often reduced to a "bowl" or hemisphere, often nested in layers and inter-woven, these forms evolved from my exposure to traditional Japanese basketry used in the work of Hisako Sekijima when Brookfield Craft Center hosted her workshop in 1983 at the now closed Connecticut historic site.
