Market Baskets - Vienna Style

My style morphing


The wonder of any craft or art form lies in its many expressions.  It morphs and evolves as environments change. 


Color forms


I love making baskets because of the countless expressions these forms can take – shapes, colors, even functions shift.


Here in Vienna folks like to go to the market carrying their own bag or basket.  With that in mind, I have come up with a couple of new designs for my own version of a market basket.


This first one is "Jen's Basket".  I made it for my friend, Jen, who grew up by the sea.  I choose colors and patterns that reminded me of our oceans...

This second design is called, "Vienna Market".  It is the perfect basket for that jaunt down the street to the market.

  1. What beautiful bags! They look exquisitely made.
    You mention that you live in 'the land of Hundertwasser' - he is my favourite artist ever, I want to go to that land one day
