Really beautiful textile sculptures using knotting as well as other textile techniques. 

Statement from the 31st Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show

To create my one-of-a-kind contemporary baskets, my primary method is knotting, while netting, crochet and hand-beadweaving may also be used in combination with one another. Materials consist mostly of hand-dyed nylon cord, as well as, cotton and a variety of novelty yarns. Each piece contains a form that has been carved and sculpted, although I have applied my techniques using homegrown gourds with their shape and size naturally determined.

She won this years Adrianna Farrelli Prize For Excellence In Fiber Art at the show.  See more of her work at 31st Philadelphia Craft Show
