Food Basket: Kete Kai

by


SOLD

“The open woven basket pays tribute to Food Baskets. This Food Basket focuses and showcases the necessary materials required by fishermen. This contemporary Food Basket is woven with a combined weight of 500lb nylon thread and stainless silver wire. I took full advantage of your initial open invitation to explore and be innovative with technical execution and media manipulation of weaving processes. This open-ended basket reflects it all.”

Christina is a master weaver and has been weaving for more than forty years. She attributes her knowledge to many people, especially her mother, Matekino Lawless, who is also a weaver and has been her strongest support and mentor. Christina is grounded in the traditional weaving techniques but has moved towards more contemporary forms. She continues to push the traditional boundaries of weaving, using materials such as glass, copper, stainless steel, wood and Perspex.
