Exchange Basket Received: Nancy DeVries to Toni Best
Our latest exchange! This one was made by Nancy DeVries, and received by Toni Best. Here's what Toni had to say about it:
What a beautiful piece of art and a wonderful gift!Nancy Devries coiled pine needles around a wooden base and captured a fantastic piece of drift wood from Lake Michigan. She has used thin artificial sinew against the dark, glycerin treated needles to create this asymmetrical piece with three floating coils. I feel privileged indeed to be the recipient of this basket! Thank you so much, Nancy. It is awesome!
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!
