I was disappointed that the camera's auto-focus function chose to focus on the back of this sweet little basket instead of the front! Dang! But there's still enough detail to see the construction of this kelp basket, made by Mary Irvine, our late Guild member. Today was the sale of her materials, supplies, and basket collection.
There was a LOT!! She was very talented, and interested in very many diverse basketry techniques, as well as jewelry and beading.
It was amazing to see such wonderful creativity, but heartbreaking at the same time.
Tomorrow I will have photos of the treasures I bought!
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.
