About Betsy Bauer

Inspired by the drama of the primal rock landscape of the Southwest and my Zen Buddhist practice, I make sculptures using stones I collect and wrap in natural cane, fusing ancient Japanese basketry knots with contemporary design influenced by the New Mexico.The ancient stones I collect and wrap have their own energies and stories which bring an organic, life force to the pieces. The cane I use to wrap the rocks has to be soaked and has unique qualities which cause it to shrink and hug the rocks after the cane is dry.
