Artist Feature - Anne Jillett
Anne Jillett, Ocean Relic series.
From her Bellenden Kerr studio Ellis Road Fibre Art, Anne Jillett creates stunning woven forms from natural materials, thigh-spun yarn and recycled fabrics. These coiled baskets, unique vessels and suspended forms are inspired by and built upon driftwood, found by the artist while beach combing south of Cairns. "They are an embodiment and exploration of possibilities presented by the coiling technique in response to positive and negative spaces all of which reflect the weathering actions of sea and wind." Anne Jillett, 2018
