Eve Sumsky Basketry
Basket weaver, maker of small woven jewelry
One thing that always seemed important to Eve Sumsky is that the item should have a use or a purpose. Basket weaving makes a great deal of sense to Eve as it gives her the opportunity to create something not only beautiful but that can be used. As a basket weaver Eve enjoys exploring the different techniques of weaving, the variety of materials that can be used, and the old styles of baskets made in the past. From this she can create containers that fit my goal of beauty and usefulness. The more Eve weaves and masters her craft in the traditional styles and techniques of basketry, the easier it becomes for her to let creativity take over and weave ‘new’ baskets using the old ways.
