Kelp Woven Basket With Feather Decoration By Kathy Pick
Artisan Kathy Pick turns retro into contemporary with flair and style, and creates natural art with found objects. Drawing inspiration from long walks on the beaches and through the forests of Haida Gwaii, Kathy uses gathered materials to hand-craft distinctive kelp, willow, bark and pine needle baskets and cedar pouches. She is also the vision behind Kicking it Up a Notch, her unique line of up-cycled clothing. Sustainability is central to Kathy’s philosophy and artistry. Kathy also teaches classes in the art and skill of basket-making.
