    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.

    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
