"Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain." Carl Jung
I don't weave simply to make baskets. The baskets are a by-product of deep journeys into my own and the collective unconscious, far travels into the mystery and the quantum field. Art is Medicine.
A tradition from man's early history, basket weaving has the power to tell a story written by Spirit, with the love of the weaver's heart and hands.
These baskets share a story, each carrying tender threads of wisdom, compassion, and hope. Each basket is a gift, handcrafted with great love, composed of natural fibers, pine needles, bark, feathers, fur, thread, and minerals, woven to blend strong Medicine for your nourishment.
"Some artists are able to embrace the spirit of things, and so produce beautiful Art.
Then there is the exceptional Artist, one who, rather than merely embracing Nature, is embraced *by* Nature. The Art of these rare creators is a direct commune born of their communion with the Sacred. Such is the Art of Francesca Oldani" Jade Wah'oo Grigori
My great gratitude and love to my weaving teachers, Tu Moonwalker and Karen Flanagan Bushgens.
