Monthly Meetings

Sally Prangley, Basketry, Jewelry and Sculpture

June 8, 2024; 10:30 a.m.

In person and via Zoom

“Wire and paper— two materials I can’t get enough of! The wire serves as my outline, the paper as my illustration, filling in the details within the wire shapes. The titles of my artwork hint at the concepts behind them, most often life experiences, puns, or simply things I love. I use wire as fine as thread to as thick as rope. As for paper, if my scissors can cut it, I’ll use it. I appreciate the process of taking tightly coiled wire on a spool and combining it with flat paper and transforming these materials into unexpected 3-dimensional objects.”

Sally has drawn, painted, and created mixed media art all her life and is largely self-taught. She majored in psychology/minored in art history and literature at Northwestern University (1980) and received her MBA in marketing from the George Washington University (1983). Sally lives near her hometown of Seattle after many years spent on the east coast.

Sally blends traditional basketry and wirework techniques to create her unusual wire objects. All work is done by hand, freeform, using only wire and whatever materials are in the piece. 

Materials include papers, found objects, and beads harvested from vintage jewelry.
