Nazareth At Christmas

Ann Nazareth is another artist I came across in the shop at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Ann took her degree in constructed textiles as a mature student and was drawn to basket making techniques as a way to produce 3-D pieces. She is inspired by creation myths and folk tales - stories duplicated in world cultures showing our similarities not our differences.

Her basket work figures always bring a huge smile to my face.
Ann says: I enjoy meeting a challenge and believe all forms are possible, until proved otherwise. I'm not afraid to experiment because what doesn't work usually acts as a catalyst for new ideas. Would you just Adam and Eve it! To read more about Ann Nazareth and see more work, click here.
