Pine Needle Baskets

We just got in these fabulous new baskets by local artist Luella Castelda. These beautiful pieces are created using found objects from shells and driftwood to a horseshoe, and woven using traditional techniques and materials. Luella learned basket weaving from her step mother and gradually absorbed the many influences of both Native American and Mexican cultures in her work. Each basket is a unique work of art. Luella’s evocative baskets are currently on display at Northwest Fine Woodworking.

For those with interest in the art of basketry, the Bellevue ArtMuseum will be having a show titled Intertwined: Contemporary Baskets from the Sara and David Lieberman Collection starting in December. You can read more about this show on their website.Also worth a mention at BAM- this Friday, furniture maker (and former member of NWFW) Ken Richards will be giving a free talk about the creative process and influences of woodworkers such as Emmet Day and Sam Maloof. Click here for time and location.
