Central Valley, basket by Marie Cole

Central Valley

11 ½” diameter; $375

One spring, on my way back to Oregon from southern California, I was passing through California’s Central valley and was struck by the amazing layers of colors. The floor of the valley was tan, then a layer of green orchards, then the brown of the foothills, the purple mountains and the blue sky.

The greens in the center of the basket represent the beach grasses. The next layer is the sand with the white edge of a shallow wave. The ocean is a deeper blue than the lighter blue of the sky.
