Exchange Received: Pamela Zimmerman to Nancy Gildersleeve
The basket I sent to Nancy Gildersleeve has arrived. It is called "Splash," and as Nancy has surmised, is coiled with 2 colors of horsehair. Nancy wrote: It is a masterful piece of coiling built on one of her clay centers, stamped with a fish design. It is coiled with bright blue waxed nylon, split very thin with each stitch split as it goes around. I think she's used horsehair to coil over and the shape curves up and then folds in on itself, the best part are three really tiny baskets attached to the topmost coil! What an awesome endeavor!!Thanks so much Pamela, I'm honored.
You're welcome, Nancy! It is so much fun to be a part of these exchanges! I cannot wait to see the rest of the baskets!
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!
