About this piece

Invitational Invitee: Marilyn is a self taught weaver and has taken willow structure weavings from simple basketry into the realm of woven sculpture and three-dimensional wall art. Her work has won not only “Best of Fiber” but “Best of Sculpture” at Western state art shows from Scottsdale and Sedona to Sun Valley and Sausalito. She has been weaving for nearly 40 years. Her craft of focus was fine beadwork until she spent a summer day visiting with her sister in Illinois and learning the amenites of basice wicker weaving. Upon her return to Montana she went to the river to find willow, bulrushes and cattail and in a few sunlit, riverside hours she was ensnared. Her background is still manifest in the embellishments, which are the finishing touches on nearly every piece.
