Woven Work

Delia Fian Turner weaves the fibers of place and creative possibility. Gathering material from waste spaces at the edge of the human world - roadside thickets, power line cuts, and abandoned lots, she harvest plants considered invasive and a nuisance, to transform them into beautiful and useful works of art. Her baskets are for everyday life - for holding, for carrying, for weaving relationship and wonder into the seemingly mundane. Delia's baskets combine traditional as well as explorative techniques to weave forms that are useful and appropriate for our world today, while whispering of a future where baskets again take a central role in daily life. Delia's baskets carry hope for the future in a changing world and the gifts that lay hidden in forgotten spaces.
