pistachios revisited

"My current body of work focuses on transforming mundane materials into something extraordinary. I draw from my own vocabulary to create interesting patterns and textures from various materials used in repetition." Lindsay Ketterer Gates

i love pistachios. love, love, love them. this contemporary basket, created by lindsay ketterer gates, is adorned with hundreds of pistachio shells and tiny glass beads sewn onto stainless steel mesh. fascinated by mundane objects and repeating patterns, gates transforms ordinary materials into sophisticated baskets. she's on my 'watch' list. now that pistachio shells have been elevated to fine art, i don't know if i'll ever throw them in the trash again. i see trouble ahead...
