|Priscilla Henderson (13 Jul 1942 - 07 Aug 2004)|
"From the outset, my work has demanded a contemporary spare and high contrast treatment to maintain its integrity. My primary interest is in design and it is that factor, rather than function, size, materials or personal expression, which dictates a piece. The line of the work is terribly important to me."
|Sea Urchin Encased, 1987|
"I am committed to the innovations of contemporary basketry, while honoring my background in traditional craftsmanship. I like a strong form, pieces with visible bones."
Rattan, maple hardwood, cotton, acrylics, lacquers; 1997

"It is the potential of each piece to stand alone as a structural representation of both inspiration and the utmost standards of workmanship that maintains me as a full time, studio fiber artist."
