Current Artists-in-Residence

Dan Brockett

Dan Brockett creates handwoven baskets from willow grown on his 12 acre property, Foggy Blossom Farm, in Leechburg, PA. He began weaving in 2018 and has primarily focused on traditional techniques including stake and strand, Zarzo, and rib-style weaves. As a grower turned self-taught artist, there is an element of companionship with, and reverence for, his material that permeates every project. From choosing the willow varieties he plants to eventually harvesting and selecting each rod for a specific basket, Dan’s desire to be in relationship with all aspects of his craft is the driving force behind his work.
