Ann Coddington Rast takes the prehistoric craft of twining and gives it a modern twist.
Her contemporary sculptures, made with a 20,000-year-old basketry technique, have an almost timeless feel that enhances their
delicate shapes. Many of her sculptures embody personal metaphors that may be hard to unravel, but which provide the viewer
with layers of meaning.
Since receiving her Master in Fine Arts from the University of Illinois in 1993, Rast has gone on to display her work across
the country while teaching sculpture in Illinois colleges.
