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!
