Like the title indicates this is a sample of some of my favorite baskets that I made during three months this winter while I lived in Asheville, NC and interned with artist Matt Tommey in his River Arts District studio and gallery. I had an amazing time and learned so much even during the short time I was interning. I would highly recommend checking out Matt’s website (http://www.matttommey.com/) and even his studio if you are in Asheville! If you are interested in learning how to process materials and make baskets then apply for his internship!
The materials for these baskets include kudzu, various barks, grapevine, honeysuckle, red osier dogwood, rivercane, and accents in many other lovely things from nature.
