Ongoing since 2015

For weeks I collected rope washed ashore from lobster traps onto the rocky beaches of Deer Isle, Maine. Cleaned, unraveled, and restitched, the colorful rope became a collection of unique baskets accented with local stones and other island treasures.

In 2018 the project continues with a new palette of Pacific Ocean rope collected from Oregon and Kauai: wilder and more eroded, weathered by months or years at sea.

The Pacific Coast series will be released this summer, and is available for pre-order now.
