    Baskets of Time: Profiles of Maine Indian Basket Makers

    Baskets of Time: Profiles of Maine Indian Basket Makers

    In the early 1990s, the art of Wabanaki basketry was considered nearly extinct. Today it is a recognized as a vibrant and evolving form of Native American art.

    What saved this important art form from extinction? The imagination, hard work, and generosity of a core group of elders who had kept the tradition alive, along with the Maine Indian Basketmakers Association. Baskets of Time shares the stories of seventeen artists and families. Each profile describes how the artist learned the art of basket weaving from individuals within their family and from other tribal members. In their own words, they describe how they transform such raw materials as sweetgrass and ash into beautiful baskets that have become award-winning works of art sold in galleries and exhibited in museums, including the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.

    Gretchen Faulkner, Director of the Hudson Museum at the University of Maine, has written an essay in which she provides the historical background for the tradition of Maine Wabanaki basket making–and the important role the art form played in the past and still plays today in the lives of in the Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, Maliseet and Micmac tribes.

    Baskets of Time is beautifully produced book that is fully illustrated with color photography of each artist and their work. It will appeal to collectors of Native American basket making; to people who are just discovering basketry art; and to those who are interested in learning the story of how an ancient Native American art form has been not only saved from extinction but also imbued with the energy and creativity of a new generation of Wabanaki artists.

    Robbie Craig Cherry Wood Moose

    A handsome moose carved from cherry wood by Robbie Craig, Cherokee artist. Beautifully carved and finished. The wood’s grain is quite attractive; the end grain, as seen in the antlers, is particularly so.

    Please note the coloration of the wood is consistent; any variations are caused by reflection of light in the digital image. In addition, the rear left hoof appears to be in the air in one of the photos. This is an illusion of the image; all hooves are solidly on the ground.

    Vintage Eskimo Artifact

    This pointed artifact is seemingly carved from bone with a hollow base. The pointed tip is carefully carved with geometric shapes. This can be displayed as an artifact or worn as a necklace. We do not believe it was intended as a necklace, but rather as a tie or toggle of some sort. Either way, it presents an interesting case for discussion.

    2 3/4 in. long x 3/8 in. at its widest point. A leather cord with sterling silver clasp will be included which we can customize for any length up to 22 inches. Or, we can leave the cord unfinished and let you customize it to any length you wish.

    Vintage Ivory Whale Bracelet

    This is the most delicate carved ivory bracelet we have seen. The whales are carved in bas relief on the fresh walrus tusk discs. It came out of a collection of a gentleman who lived in Alaska around 1950, so it was made late in the 2nd quarter or early in the 3rd quarter of the 20th century.

    The bracelet is 9/16 inch at the widest points. It could fit a wrist of up to 6 inches, either a child, or an adult with a narrow wrist. It is re-strung on elastic jewelry thread.

    Dorothy Savage Joseph Birch Bark Tray

    Dorothy Savage Joseph Birch Bark Tray

    This birch bark tray by Dorothy Savage Joseph, an Athabascan Indian originally from Holy Cross, Alaska, came from the estate of a gentleman who lived in Alaska during the late 1990s and early 2000s. It has a lot going for it, including a pleasing shape, good quality bark, nice contrast between the dark inner bark and the white outer bark, and beautifully dyed root lashings (likely spruce root) woven into a checked pattern. Aesthetically, it is a great vessel all around.

    Joseph is the author of Fishcamp. Click or tap here to see the book on Amazon.

    Clara Mattice Halibut Skin Basket

    Clara Mattice Halibut Skin Basket

    This fish skin basket came out of a collection of a gentleman who lived in Alaska for over twenty years and collected a number of Native American and Eskimo items. The basket was purchased in 2004 from the Alaska Native Medical Center shop. While we do not know Mattice’s origins, we expect she is or was Athabascan.

    Fish skin was used extensively by native Alaskans for waterproof clothing and containers. This basket has a sealskin rim and caribou fur adornment. It is very attractive and is in excellent condition, with no tears or damage.

    The photo with a white background depicts the translucency and glow of the basket when backlit.

    Note: because of marine mammal content, this item cannot be shipped outside of the United States.

    David Farnham is a  carver of the Onandaga tribe, one of the Iroquois Six Nations in Canada.

    Anishinaabe Quilled Birch Bark Basket

    Anishinaabe Quilled Birch Bark Basket

    This birch bark basket with a floral design dates from the 1970’s. It is attributed to Susie Shagonaby, an Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) quill worker from Michigan. A photocopy of a typed letter about Ms. Shagonaby accompanies the basket.

    The basket is in good condition with two small areas of quill loss on the edges of the basket (one visible in a photo). The flower on the cover is surrounded by raindrops, perhaps. There are two vertical lines where the birch bark shows through, though this appears to be intentional.

    This is a wonderful example of Ojibwe quill work.

    6 in. diameter x 2 1/4 in. high

    Davidee Itulu Scrimshaw

    Davidee Itulu Scrimshaw

    Davidee Itulu, 1929 – 2006, created detailed scrimshaw figures on either walrus tusk or caribou antler. This antler includes human figures, geese, a bear, a ptarmigan, and a walrus. Beautiful detail. Serpentine base.

    It’s rare to see Itulu’s scrimshaw on the market. He lived in the community of Kimmirut, known in 1977 by its Anglo name of Lake Harbour.

    Bottom of base includes the artist’s name in Inuktitut and Roman as well as the date (77) and Lake Harbour. (I know it’s impossible to read in the photo.)

    8 3/4 in. high x 1 1/2 in. wide (base is 2 5/8 in. wide)

    Decontie & Brown Silver Necklace with Basket Weave and Rhyolite

    Read about the artists here.

    Decontie & Brown Silver Necklace with Basket Weave and Rhyolite

    Made from Argentium, this necklace incorporates local Maine traditions and materials. The dark rhyolite with white specks comes from Maine, found and cut by Jason Brown. The woven ash in the medallion represents the centuries old Maine Indian tradition of weaving with wood from the sacred ash tree.

    The texture of the silver is better visible on the rear of the medallion; the texture is used throughout the entire medallion, front and back.

    The hand made chain is 24 in. in length. The medallion is 1 3/4 in. high x 1 1/2 in. wide.

    Argentium is an alloy that contains 93.5% silver (higher silver content than sterling); it is highly tarnish resistant, making it easier to maintain in humid climates.
