“I define a basket as an object, often a vessel shape, created in a textile structure where the dynamics of each component are visible. My expanded definition includes anything implying a relationship to basketry in its technical, aesthetic or functional terms. To me, that vocabulary includes: lines bent, looped, passed under, over, crossed. Resilience. Flexibility. Self-supporting, standing, rigid.” - Hisako Sekijima
