Description

Katherine Caldwell reaches back to the ancient art of straw weaving to bring new purpose to what was once practiced worldwide by agricultural societies.  The patterns that have been passed down were used in rituals and hung in houses after the harvest.  In these intricate designs, the spirit of the grain would be kept safe for the coming spring.  Katherine integrates techniques from ancient times into her creations, preferring the use of tying, stitching and weaving instead of gluing whenever possible.
