Viola Knudsen

A prolific artisan born in Missouri and raised amid the natural beauty of the rural Midwest, Viola Pace Knudsen has recently been drawn to the pre-Columbian art form of intricately coiled baskets, free-form sculptures which she constructs from hand-gathered needles of Florida's long leaf pine. The pine needles are sterilized and cleaned; the baskets are then created using the coil method, and often incorporate sliced, polished walnuts, shells, or other found treasures of nature. After drying the completed baskets for several days two coats of polyurethane are applied to them for durability.
