This gathered sumptuous turquoise vessel expands the limits of basket construction and draws on indigenous American traditions. Found materials from the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, including bear grass, yucca, wildflowers, creosote, copper, volcanic rock, and agave, have been mixed to create a pulp and draped over stones to produce this expressive shape, which conveys the lessons and memories of the land from which it is formed.
