Pendant. Little basket handwoven with corn husk fiber and nylon thread; knitted hemp string.
Size: 1.37 x 2.75 x 1 inch
I have woven small baskets with stripes of corn husk (“chala”, from quechua language). I separated fibers from the leaves and I strip the excess with the nails to obtain a very thin thread. Corn is a founding crop in America, a way to unite my South American origin with my second home in the North.
