My love of weaving grew from my wicker furniture restoration background which began in 1990. Instantaneously my passion for craft and design was ignited! I love the challenge involved in creating large, well balanced, beautiful shapes; functional and artistic. My projects flow from a variety of twining and plaiting techniques. Reed, cane and whole rattan are treated with cellulose fiber dyes before the weaving process begins. After the weaving is completed hand sanding brings high lights to the natural tone reed.
A lustrous, hand-rubbed wax finish brings the piece to completion.
