Ongoing since 2015

The baskets begin as ghost nets: fishing rope washed ashore on the beaches of Maine, Oregon, and Kauai. Cleaned, unraveled, and restitched, the colorful rope becomes a collection of unique baskets accented with local stones and other treasures. The color and condition of each unique piece of rope serves as an artist's palette - from freshly cut potwarp lines at local fisheries, to wild and eroded flotsam weathered by months or years at sea.

Join me to create artwork with 600+ pounds of recycled fishing rope in my ongoing series of Ghost Net Landscape interactive community installations.
