Peggy Wiedemann
This basket artist from Huntington Beach, CA uses natural fibers and gourds to create coiled sculptural baskets. She personally gathers many of her materials, such as pine needles and palm fibers. To these natural materials, she adds metal, beads and “found” objects to form unique pieces. Using these traditional materials and the classic basketry technique of coiling in unorthodox ways, she creates pieces uniquely hers.
