SNEAK PEEK of this exhibition here in the official Pine Needle Group Blog! Thanks to Teri for sharing these images of some baskets in the exhibition!
The first photo is of "Blue Bayou," (at top) and Teri made the ceramic center as well as coiled the piece. She says, "With that one I experimented with changing direction as I was stitching. I thought the result was pretty interesting. The photo doesn't do it justice, but maybe you get the idea."
For "Chinese Bowl," (right) again, Teri made the ceramic piece on which she based the coiling. The third photo (below, left) is of "Tri Colored Tray."
Lovely pieces, thanks so much for the sneak peek, Teri! I wish i was close enough to attend!
I am a fiber artist, wife, and mother. My Catching the Moon series of weavings is largely about my life and the pursuit of dreams. See my Catching the Moon series on my website. I generally use basketry techniques, but love to mix media and techniques. I also use this blog to highlight my online guild, The Pine Needle Group (www.PineNeedleGroup.com )Thanks for reading my blog!
