Finding Form with Fibre
"The modern basket makers must-have book"
This stunning book has been years in the making. It is an exploration of modern basketry, a craft that has transcended from craft to art form. Its pages guide the reader through a visual journey of the works of fourteen Australian basketry artists. It is both a celebration of the creative voice each with basketry at its core.
The book is broken into 3 sections:
Interviews with fourteen modern basketry artists
A materials section with a detailed list of plants that can be used in your basketry practice
A how-to section
Stunningly designed and illustrated, these pages serve as a compendium of beautiful makers, guiding the reader on a range of basketry techniques; some with an interesting twist on the traditional. It will invite the viewer to explore different mediums, plant fibres, and recycled materials to use in their own sustainable, creative practice.
