Sheri E. Smith pine needle creations - Artist Statement & Exhibits
Sheri E. Smith          -  Pine Needle Creations
                             Artist Statement

The art of basket making was developed at an early stage of man's evolution as containers for everyday life.
I use these ancient techniques to create what I like to call eye candy. The common thread woven through each piece is a touch of whimsy. 
Mixed fibers are sewn and coiled around pine needles to form intricate patterns incorporating a mixture of wires, stones and beads.
 Beauty and artistry pure and simple.
