Balance Interrupted

2020 – 7.5 X 7 X 2.5 inches

Waxed Linen Thread

Twining, Reverse Twining, Open Twining

This basket was woven during the pandemic quarantine of 2020. It represents the life balance that was interrupted by this event. It feels like the basket is going to fall over, but it doesn’t, it persists to stand, as we did through the quarantine period and beyond.

All at once, the form of the bulk of the basket is very consistent, while the pattern is asymmetric to cause some unease. At the rim, I wove another basket using open twining to represent the human spirit laid bare and exposed by the pandemic.
