Artist Statement

As a sculptural fibre artist and basketmaker, my work honours the abundance of materials found in nature and the possibilities that even the most invasive of plants can offer. The gathering, preparation, designing and creating of my pieces are all equally important to me. Transforming vines, branches, roots and bark into sculptural forms and vessels connects me to the natural world and is both a meditative and gratifying process. With this collection, my aim was to re-create, on a miniature scale, some of my larger, signature ribbed baskets.


Gloria Currie Stanley is a sculptural fibre artist and basketmaker. Her interest in creating fibre art utilizing natural materials began while earning her undergraduate degree in Studio Art from the University of Kentucky. Retired from her 33 years of teaching in Coquitlam, she now pursues art full-time from her studio in Whonnock, BC. Gloria’s baskets were sold at Circle Craft Cooperative on Granville Island in the 1980s and her sculptural pieces have been exhibited locally, nationally and internationally. She is a member of the Whonnock Weavers and Spinners Guild and the National Basketry Organization.
