    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

    Jeremy Frey Traditional Basket

    ,
    Jeremy Frey Traditional Basket Jeremy Frey is known for innovative designs. This basket has a traditional Passamaquoddy look, with important differences, some obvious and some subtle. For example, the gauge of the ash splints is significantly smaller than was used in older baskets. He also added a turned and carved cherry burl disc with beautiful grain to the cover. Notice also, some of the woven braids are cedar, rather than ash. The color difference may not be visible online, but is evident in person. Last, the height of this basket sets it apart from most traditional pieces. In keeping with traditional baskets, Frey used no dyes; all colors on this basket are natural. Size: 14 3/4 in. high x 7 in. diameter

    Clara Keezer Brown Ash and Braided Sweetgrass Basket

    Clara Keezer Brown Ash and Sweetgrass Basket The Wabanaki tribes of Maine, many of whom lived inland during winter and on the coast in the summer, began making fancy baskets in the late 1800's. Fancy baskets are more delicate than the utilitarian baskets made for carrying or storing goods. The tribal members sold utilitarian baskets, fancy baskets, canoes, and other wares to vacationers in the coastal resorts. Clara Keezer, a Passamaquoddy Indian born in 1930, was one of the women who kept the art of fancy basket making alive into the present. With the demise of coastal travel by the Indians, and the loss of the market, demand for fancy baskets dropped. Women like Clara Keezer held onto their basket making traditions, made innovations in designs, and share(d) their skills with younger generations. This basket was woven by Clara Keezer in 1997 from natural colored ash and braided sweetgrass. 6 in. diameter x 6 1/2 in. high, including ribbon finial.

A world where all of the children love and encourage each other. I visualize the human race enjoying themselves, doing the creative things that make them fulfilled. As I pray, I breathe deep and long intending a moment of peace and contentment to all of my brothers and sisters of the Earth. As I smudge, I imagine the smoke going up, up ,up and out to the whole world and those in need of a prayer. As I practice the healing art of Qi-Gong, I visualize a world of health, strong, bright, and full of laughter and love! As I walk, I take notice of all the beauty my eyes see, all the scents my nose smell, all of the elements my skin feels, all of the sounds my ears hear! And I give thanks for being alive, For being aware, For knowing LOVE! As I write this I can feel my little spirit grow stronger. 'Cause you see-life is a spiral. What goes out comes back. The more I feel, the more alive I am. The more I give, the more I get. The more I understand about being in the moment, the more beautiful everyone and everything IS! I am calm and relaxed, right now... My being is here to learn how to spread love. My challenges are many, as I experience I gain insight. Peace be with you!"
