Description: Contemporary basket artist provides information and images of work.
Sweet grass is also known as holy grass, vanilla grass, or Seneca grass. It is hand gathered by Native Americans in various parts of the United States, as well as in Canada. The grass is combed, sorted and dried in small bundles. This grass has been used in traditional Native American basketry as well as for ceremonial purposes where the grass is bundled with sage leaves and cedar leaves. It is then and then smoldered in "smudging ceremonies" for the cleansing of the spirit. The grass releases a natural oil as it dries that gives off a sweet vanilla-tobacco like fragrance that will remain indefinitely in each sculptural basket.

|Description:||Music was my first passion. It gave me a vehicle for expressing deep feelings, and it taught me the necessity of bringing discipline and clarity of vision to my work. Sculptural coiling allows me to create a kind of visual metaphor for the music of my life.|
