Standing Vessels range in size from very small to very large, and can stand on a table, shelf or even on the floor. They differ from "basketry" in that the palm sheath fiber has been attached to a wood base, and then covered and embellished. Some are stand alone art objects, while others can be utilitarian and hold things like fresh flowers (use a glass insert), or dried branches. They may carry a message of their own, like the Introspection series. They are usually sold individually unless described as a group (like The Three Sisters). Their flat wood base provides stability for tall pieces, and can easily be weighted inside to weather a strong breeze blowing through your home. You can also have a Standing Vessel custom made for your home or to give as a gift. This is Shelley's most popular collection.
