Luce Artist Biography

Billie Ruth Sudduth began making baskets as a diversion from her job as a school psychologist, and decided in 1989 to dedicate all of her time to weaving. The shapes of her baskets are inspired by folk forms and by the numerical sequences discovered by Fibonacci, a thirteenth-century Italian mathematician who was the first to describe the "golden ratio" that governs the growth of many organisms.
