  • Artist comment: (I) love weaving with spruce roots because as a medium they present numerous challenges at all stages of the process and because solving these challenges always leaves me in awe of the master basket weavers that came before us.
Interested in buying this piece?

Juror comment: Overall, very even weave at an impressively small scale. Bottle and choice of color in grass make this a very pleasing piece to look at.
