31cj Detail HEART
I construct my baskets to appear as if they are moving, growing and animated, as though the shapes had been cut from a tree or pulled from moving water. I want them to sit still, unchanging, yet to the eye of the viewer to flow, to move around and back again, to carry the movement of life. From the fruition of a basket’s construction to the next harvest, I am involved in a representational cycle. The baskets become concrete symbols of the passage of my life.
