The baskets begin as ghost nets: fishing rope washed ashore on the beaches. 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. —Emily Miller
