Frances Solar is a traditional weaver & textile artist. She began working with copper since its warm colour always attracted her. Copper wire is easily available in many colours and, just like traditional fibers, it is flexible, can be manipulated, and patinated. She now has more freedom to design and improvise on the loom as she weaves & the resulting wire cloth can be shaped into a sculptural form that has no real function other than being something beautiful with wonderful colours and textures. She names them ‘vessels’ rather than ‘baskets’ as the latter word implies a function.
