Exchange Basket Received: Toni Best to Janet Bonnell
Here's a colorful exchange basket! They are flying in now! From coiler extraordinare Toni Best to Janet Bonnell. Here's what Janet had to say about it: Well it is the most exquisite creation from Toni Best titled "The Lady's Slipper". It starts out with a gourd base that looks like a purple rainbow surrounded by coiled dyed sea grass that undulates and curves around and then takes a dive through a hole in the bottom of the gourd and reappears to coil around somemore. It is all held together with very fine artificial sinew. Just gorgous! And somehow Toni knew that purple was my color!! Thanks so much to Toni for my lovely basket
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!
