An overflowing, woven basket is a sign of social and financial success. An empty basket symbolizes disappointment, sadness and depression. I choose an overflowing basket of success. I have wanted to make a traditional basket textile for a long time and when I stumbled upon the color combination of red and magenta I knew it would work for my design By using freezer paper templates I am able to achieve beautiful curved designs in my work. I have found that working with my own hand dyed fabrics gives me the depth and vibrancy of color that lifts my soul with their intensity.
