Exhibition held at Art Gallery of Ballarat
"Liz Souter turned basket-making into an art form, creating sculptural works from home-grown and recycled materials. Her stitched baskets, made from threads such as precious silks and indigo dyed camel hair, could take many hours to make. She travelled widely absorbing influences from other cultures but was always original with a richness and fine eye for decorative touches."
