I only made a few of these random weave baskets very early on (as this is a more traditional method). It’s rattan and cocos Palm inflorescence. I don’t like to use rattan unless absolutely necessary. I developed my own random weave technique. (Rattans are threatened with overexploitation and they are also bleached with toxic chemicals in places like Indonesia and China where there are no regulations.) As I developed my practice, very early on decided to use foraged material as a statement about consumerism and that we are surrounded by beauty that we often do not see. It makes it so much harder and there are times I wish I could just go to the store to buy material, but it’s an expression of my love for the beauty of nature. .

Next year is my parents 60th wedding anniversary. My mother’s wedding dress was in its box since the day she was married. It went from wardrobe to wardrobe everywhere we moved. A few years ago I got it and cut it into strips and twined a sculpture for her. (I also did one for me). Now it’s in the lounge room where she sees it every day. ❤️❤️ .

‘Lost Dreams’ - Mum was just saying this is one of her favorites of mine. She bought it as my very first exhibition around 5 years ago. Twined single Bangalow inflorescence and hand dyed rattan using bark. I don’t do work like this much anymore. It’s so stunning. I’d do the top differently now though. .

‘Thunder|Lightning’ - this Bangalow Palm inflorescence was soaked in the rain and every time I started weaving it started to rain and thunder. So I got as wet as it was. Look closely and there is a burnt piece running through the centre. It was one of those pieces that decided what it wanted to be and I had to listen and allow it to form through my hands.
