Kendra K Davis

I am basically self taught as a Basketry Artist. I came to basketry by accident! I had been involved in vessels through my ceramic experiences and I have done a lot of needlepoint, counted cross stitch, macramé along with other needle arts. My mother taught me the basics of basketry while demonstrating to my son, (I was looking over their shoulders and trying not to pay attention...I needed another project like another hole in my head) he never finished his basket......I did and have been making them ever since.

Basketry is the only media which I have made rules for myself. I use only pine needles in the coil method.

Once I proved to myself that I could make a coil pine needle basket "right" I began to explore the form. I have been trying to push the traditional form ever since.

Technically, by definition basketry is considered a "Fine Craft" rather than "Fine Art" but when a piece of craft is no longer functional it becomes ART. This is the logic behind separating my "Baskets" from "Pine needle Sculpture" but, some times my "baskets" cross the lines.

Each of my baskets and pine needle sculptures is signed with a Montel Metal tag which is imprinted with KKD or a brass tag imprinted with Kendra Klauber Davis
