Imagine weaving vine like pieces of plant material around a convoluted shape of air... That is how I create this work. Using traditional and self-invented basketry techniques the work is woven similar to baskets using rattan, palm, metal, paper and plastic. But it is sculpture, not baskets. The work is large in scale, measured in feet, not inches, and is made to hang against a wall.
