Sally Bright, Michigan: We discovered Sally’s work at Art Prize, Grand Rapids, 2012, where she won an award. Her contemporary baskets are sculpted without a form and woven of Rattan and Palm. She paints them in Acrylic. She says of her work “"After weaving artistic works for almost 30 years, I still strive to continue pushing the definition of "basketry"; to increase the complexity of my work; to stimulate the imagination of the viewer; and to create beauty." Her work was featured on the cover of American Style Magazine

Artist Statement: "After weaving artistic works for over 30 years, I still continue to push the definition of "basketry"; to increase the complexity of my work; to stimulate the imagination of the viewer; and to create beauty."
“I began collecting baskets as a teenager in Southern California - always searching the local shops for the most unusual ones, never thinking about where they came from. The synchronicity and realization of my life long love of basketry came full circle after moving to Michigan as an adult years later.

My life altering moment occurred the day I happened upon a new craft shop announcing "BasketClasses". I instantly envisioned that once I learned to make baskets I would combine the traditional craft of basketry with my creative arts background to create organic sculptural designs unlike anything I'd ever seen before. Before I knew it, the images in my head were becoming a reality. My traditional basketry weaving techniques enabled me to develop my very own peerless art form by freely using my imagination and creative interests. I'm honored that my work continues to be recognized by numerous awards nationally as I travel to exhibit and sell my work.”
