From the Artist
I create sculptural wire basketry by blending traditional techniques of basketry with wire-working. As I continue to push the concept of basketry by changing materials, shapes and sizes, I want to explore yet another dimension: that of adding light. I want to integrate lighting as a part of my materials so as the basket takes shape, so does its inherent illumination. Conceptually, I want to create baskets that are swirls of light, that are suspended arrays of wire shapes, mobile-like, infused with light. I want to create larger, more sculptural wire forms that glow from within.
