About Kari Lonning
Baskets are woven of artist-dyed rattan reed using commercial, water fast dyes. The techniques used are multi-element twining to achieve the spiral patterns, tapestry techniques to add spots or stripes of color and the artist's own hairy technique, where hundreds of short pieces of reed are woven into the walls of the baskets. All designs are original and all work is done by the artist.
I will be at the Convention Center from November 3 (gala preview) to November 7th. If you can't come to the show, send me an email at email@example.com and we can set up a time to talk.
