Ramona Buss

After several years of studying and experimenting with fiber manipulation Ramona Buss began weaving what she calls ‘sculptural basketry’ using wild fibers, vines, and branches which she gathers from the woods and roadsides. Her weaving process is free form, often dictated by the materials she uses. Bark, along with reeds and seagrass hand-dyed with vegetable and procion dyes, add accents of texture and color.

Her pieces and their shapes are continuously evolving, sometimes mimicking traditional basket designs while other times experimenting with concepts. “I weave outside the basket, allowing unique shapes and designs to emerge.”
