Deloss Webber’s love of nature has inspired him to make artworks that combine stones with basketry.  He uses techniques derived from Japanese baskets, Native American Basketry, loom weaving, fly-tying and nautical knitting.  His materials include bamboo, cane, rattan and reed.  Although he is inspired by the containers of traditional basketry, he lets the nature of the stone direct him to produce a more complex sculpture.

Direction to Bertona Hall at Seattle Pacific University

Seattle Pacific University is on the north edge of Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, several blocks west of the Fremont bridge.

From I-5, take the NE 50th Street exit and drive west. Turn left (south) on Fremont Avenue N — about two miles. Get into the right lane as you cross the Fremont bridge and take the first turn-off to the right and then immediately right again onto Nickerson Street. Follow Nickerson for about half a mile, and turn left (south) at the stoplight for 3rd Avenue West. You are now on the SPU campus.

From 3rd West, enter the parking lot on your left by turning into the driveway beside Stell's, the small restaurant. Our building is on the east side of the parking lot, a one-story red brick building. Parking in the lot is free for us on weekends; ignore the "No Parking" signs.
