Meet Emily Dvorin, Contemporary Fiber Artist
Emily Dvorin has been a fiber artist for over 35 years, and her goal is to challenge the original definition of basketry by using non-traditional materials. Her "transordinary vessels" turn recognizable household objects and urban materials into visual comments on daily life, and give the ordinary a new and improved identity. Her work has been exhibited in shows and galleries across the country, and she has won many awards and honors. Click here to view a video of Emily, her studio and her work.
