Del derives his knotting techniques from traditional Japanese and Native
American basketry, wicker furniture, loom weaving, fly-tying, and nautical
knotting. Each stone is selected and wrapped with a unique design made of
various materials including bamboo, cane, rattan, and reed. Largely influenced
by Japanese Ikebana basketry, Del often incorporates into his designs
traditional Japanese knotting techniques such as butterfly knots, insect
wrapping, interlocking V knots, and spiral cross knots.
