Atz kilcher has been creating his local root and fiber baskets for almost 35 years. “In this exhibit, I am focusing on shallow baskets or platters designed as wall hangings. Bark fibers, fine roots and grass roots offset larger and rougher roots., imparting a tighter woven, more fibrous look. Each basket is adorned with found objects I have collected over the years such as bones, claws, teeth, beaver, buttons, bone, ivory and horn.”
“Rivers are the arteries of Alaska. Some are ancient. Some are brand new. Some are famed waterways. Others are so isolated only wild creatures travel their courses…. But all are in essence doing the same thing: bringing the mountains into the sea in a relentless susurration.”
