Un beso, Lorena Lorena recently posted..Work in progress Reply Irene on November 4, 2014 at 7:19 pm I have seen these pictures on Flickr. This person is making exact copies of the work of a well-known weaver and stone sculptor. It is unfortunate that she is passing this off as her own creations. Reply Moonmonkey on May 7, 2015 at 9:58 pm The artist you are talking about is Deloss Webber. I don’t see ANYWHERE that this person is “passing these off” as their idea. I have made similar objects as an artist well before I knew Deloss existed!! I guess if someone makes a Tamari ball, they must be passing themselves off as the one person who came up with the idea?! Or someone who paints the same landscape as someone else! Every brush stroke, every stitch, every photo taken is a step in the independent development of one’s own art. Reply Nicole on February 25, 2016 at 7:44 am If this artist has seen it somewhere else, made by someone else, and then made it themselves without crediting the other designer, then that is, indeed, “passing it off as their own”. Reply Disesma on March 24, 2019 at 3:32 pm I am just now viewing the art because I Rock paint and this was posted on our site. I get a little disappointed in people when I see them critique and put down another’s attempt to try a new art not matter who was first plus the original artist? They are most likely honored and this skill possibly could have come from the Japanese culture 100000 yrs ago!!!

Reply Kathy on November 17, 2015 at 4:43 pm I would love to learn how to make these rocks. How did you go about this? Reply Nikki on February 25, 2016 at 2:55 pm I would love to learn how to do this type of weaving. Anyone know where there are instructions? Reply Donna Sakamoto Crispin on March 4, 2016 at 3:38 pm Many of these knots are traditional Japanese basketry embellishments. I saw Mr. Webber’s beautiful creations many years ago in Seattle. I have also seen them by an artist in San Francisco, at the Asian Art Museum. Looking at many books, and trial and error, I wrote a booklet, with color photos on how to re-create some of the knots on a basket. I don’t give specific instructions for putting them on a rock, but you can certainly transfer the techniques once you’ve practiced them a few times. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with any of the comments above, but does that mean that Mr. Webber is copying Japanese basketweavers, and if so, how do you give credit when it is an ancient technique? Reply Gitta Cooper on March 14, 2016 at 4:01 pm Would love to buy your little booklet, is it available? Reply Donna on March 17, 2016 at 12:18 am I am having some booklets printed at this moment. They won’t be here for a week. $15 plus $2 postage in the U.S. I take Paypal, or you can send a personal check. Just to be clear, my booklet shows how to put the knots on baskets. You can transfer this knowledge to rocks. I do have a supplement, which I will send you at the time of payment, that specifically shows how to put the first knot on a rock. Reply Isobel Salole on March 28, 2016 at 10:35 am Hello Donna,I would love to get a copy of your booklet and supplement. I am in Canada but can certainly send you the US funds via Paypal.
