Baskets are woven of artist-dyed rattan reed using commercial, water-fast dyes.  The techniques used are multi-element twining to achieve vertical and spiral patterns and a form of tapestry weaving to get patches of color.  The textural surfaces are achieved by the artist’s own “hairy” technique, where 100’s of short pieces of reed are woven into the walls of the baskets. Encaustic medium is applied to all of the baskets to strengthen and protect them
