Bryan Sentence lectures, mounts textile exhibitions, and teaches art. He is the author (with John Gillow) of World Textiles.From Library Journal:
Sentance, a teacher, lecturer, and coauthor of World Textiles, presents a highly visual survey of baskets and basket making around the world. He briefly describes the basket-making process, from the source of the natural fibers to the weaving technique to the basket's form and function. In addition, examples of traditional, ceremonial, and functional basketry are examined from the perspectives of materials, techniques, and decorations. Throughout, the baskets are nicely and simply photographed, and historic images offer a perspective on both the basket maker and the weaving process. Because baskets are not merely carrying containers, additional chapters examine those created for fencing, fishing, storage, and tools and even those with larger applications, such as architecture. Concluding the work is a glossary, a guide to collecting and caring for these art objects, and an international listing of museums and collections. Recommended for decorative arts and craft collections. Judith Yankielun Lind, Roseland Free P.L., NJ
