Calyx is woven with daylily, iris, papyrus, hemp, and sea grass over a frame of willow skein.
The Calyx protects the seeds and thereby the genetic material necessary to carry the plants forward another generation. Calyx is over sized to bring this information to the attention of its audience.

Ralph Simpson
Fredericton New Brunswick, Canada
Canadian plant fibre artist Ralph Simpson has developed an innovative method of weaving, bending and sculpting wood and plant fibre to create three dimensional pieces. His gracefully formed work blends bold colour and innovative material with ephemeral fibres to achieve a perfect balance. He works in his studio in Fredericton, New Brunswick and exhibits his work locally, nationally and internationally, attending residencies and facilitating workshops. When foraging plant fibre he employs principles that respect environmental sustainability.
