Lynn B. Gammon

Lynn Gammon is a maker of baskets and paper. Her work has evolved from traditional basket forms toward a more complex expression, using basket-woven elements combined with handmade paper, natural objects and cast-off industrial scraps. Using humble basket and papermaking materials, she deals with subjects ranging from the deterioration of the natural environment to international human-rights abuses against women. Gammon’s work has appeared in exhibitions around the country and is featured in the book Making the New Baskets: Alternative Materials, Traditional Techniques.
