Basket Guild meeting tonight - Danielle Bodine is giving a talk about finding inspiration - she had a lot of interesting baskets from her collection, and a great slide show. Above is an interesting art piece made of layers and layers of some kind of tape. No one could quite figure out how it is done!
Here is Danielle and some of the baskets and art she brought. Below shows the whole piece from the first photo.
One of our new members joined to learn how to make a cover for his motorcycle seat. Some of our members helped him with materials and instructions, and he made a beautiful cover. He was so thrilled to have accomplished this, and he is now interested in making actual baskets, especially after seeing Danielle's presentation. We suggested saddlebags for his bike!
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
Happy Trails, Buzz
