About the Artist:

Brigid Elrod is a fiber artist focused on contemporary basketry, patinas, and natural dyes for home goods. Prioritizing the slow and circuitous over the streamlined. The lumpy over the rigid. Milwaukee-born and DTLA-based, Brigid trained in Textiles at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). For a decade she’s worked across fine art, interior design, and material development for architectural products. ladypope is the basketweaving project eponymous with her high school sports team, the Pius XI Lady Popes, honoring that mashup of divinity and impossibility. A title operating somewhere between the sweet and the rotten.
