Basket Pottery by Hilda Kidd-Barber

275 – Basket Pottery Mandala

At last weekend’s Corvallis Fall Festival, I spotted some fascinating pottery by Hilda Kidd-Barber of Fishbowl Pottery. I really appreciate her beautiful use of mixed media: basket weaving and ceramics. “The stoneware is all wheel thrown, then altered so that reed can be woven through the top third of the vessel after it has been fired.”
