Red Hand-woven Copper Basket

Measurements: 9" tall X 12" wide This basket was hand-woven with bare copper wire on a 4 harness loom. It's shape was formed with various techniques, bending, folding, twisting, braiding and coiling. It will eventually develop a patina. Weaving is a never ending exploration of color and pattern. It builds form by making countless intersections and connections necessary for the existence of the final product. For me the process represents the interrelated, interdependence of all things in nature and in our own world.
