Full Metal Basket

I like what Kate Tupper has to say in her artist statement, about the ragged edges of emotion. It resonates for me when she talks about how we think it’s okay to discriminate against mental illness, where we would not feel it was alright to discriminate on the basis of physical disability. I also really, really like her metal basket. I love baskets, I like metal, I really admire the use of metal strapping, such a hard, sharp material, to make a basket, that we think of as organic, soft, textured, ephemeral.
