"Basketpods" is my generic term for this ongoing series of sculptures. They are woven of reed or rattan, with simple, traditional basket techniques, and often combined with found objects. Some of my favorite materials to incorporate into the shapes are fragments of hardware, drift-plywood, and oxidized metal bits washed up onshore. The forms are then layered with plaster, collaged papers, and beeswax.

Basketpods are about the evocative power of contours, and about the history & nature of process.
