“I have been making baskets, sculptural baskets, and now bentwood sculpture for 39 years. My home and studio are in Huntsville, Arkansas, which is in the northwest Arkansas Ozarks. While using traditional materials and techniques I have added innovative ideas, methods of construction, and new and unique materials such as 3-M emery cloth, paint, and brass and stainless mini machine screws for connections.” - Leon Niehues
