The traditional Appalachian dressed in multiple colors and a fancy handle that emphasizes its bodacious shape. Note color changes on the handle, within the god’s eyes and use of primary, secondary and tertiary dyed ribs.
Almost 40 years have gone by since I was first introduced to the world of basketry and now, I see the world through the eyes of a basket maker. For me, repetition was a great teacher – at times, a taskmaster – and I made and sold baskets for many years. My years of production weaving are past, but I still have a basket in my hands most days, either designing, dyeing, making or getting ready to teach a class. From traditional rib work to sculptural work, I am in the zone. Basketry is my familiar world and I am most thankful for that!
