Mixed Media, Woven Vessels

I studied art years ago, majoring in textiles, and have enjoyed using many mediums over the years.  But I only learned to make my first basket three years ago. Over the past 18 months my joy and interest in vessels has grown - we are all vessels, carrying life, memories, lessons learned - and what they can say to us.

 

I also love the redemption of taking dead leaves, weeds from a garden, vines, fabric, etc. and creating something new that shows its beauty, and speaks to hearts of those who see them - even if it is just to give them a smile.
