A “New Year” introduction to Sue Yamins as we welcome her to Hanson Howard Gallery’s stable of Fine Artists for Group Show. “Forest Hue” above.
Beginning with dried gourds, Sue burns designs into the gourd and colors are applied with dyes. Once the gourd is completed the coiling begins.
“I like to use a variety of materials for the coiling. They can be made of pine needles, grasses, cattails, fiber rush or polished hemp. I also use different materials for the stitching including waxed linen, raffia, artificial sinew, silk and wool. As I continue creating gourd/baskets I find an ever-expanding list of materials that can be incorporated into my pieces.”
