I’m so excited to show you my first antler basket video in a series made through the wonderful software at Animoto.com.
It was a very simple process to select the photos I wanted to use, choose from several audio clips and then have Animoto automatically put the antler basket video together to create this 30-second video.
This particular antler basket video is made up of several deer antler wall hanging versions of my contemporary antler art decor. I created all of the featured antler baskets in this video during the 1990s, early on in my weaving career. They are some of my all-time favorites.
Incorporating hand-gathered natural weaving materials from road-side ditches is one of my favorite things to do! And then these natural materials get woven into the piece, complimenting the commercial round rattan reed I used as the primary weaving material.
I regularly scout out the hills, valleys and river areas around me in southern Minnesota, gathering the wild willow, red dogwood, bittersweet and cattail rushes. I get a Zen-like experience when out there in nature, usually in the late fall and winter, harvesting the naturals at their prime.
