    Frances Soctomah Ribbon Curl Basket

    Frances Soctomah Ribbon Curl Basket Frances Soctomah started making baskets at age 8, under the tutelage of her grandmother Molly Neptune Parker. She has recently begun to make baskets in a serious way, making very fast progress in both her designs and technique. We are very impressed with her work, and expect her to become one of the best basket makers of her generation. There are several wonderful elements to this basket. First is the colorful, but subdued palette. Second is the pattern of ribbon curls that create frames for the colors. Perhaps most important is the use of braided sweetgrass on the cover, including a frog handle, a device not often seen among today's basket makers. Overall, this basket will make a fine addition to any collection. 7 1/2 in. diameter; 4 in. tall

    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.

Fancy baskets are more delicate than the utilitarian baskets made for carrying goods.

    Ganessa Frey Indian Corn Basket

    Ganessa Frey Indian Corn Basket Penobscot weaver Ganessa Frey creates corn baskets in a variety of designs. This rendition of Indian corn uses a stunning combination of colors, including black (technically not a color), blue, and purple. A touch of sweetgrass around the rim provides a lighter contrast to the dark colors. While corn baskets are usually woven with curls, Ganessa's use of points instead of curls is a wonderful innovation.The tightly woven basket has a great presence; it needs to be seen in person to be appreciated. 14 in. long; corn body is 2 in. diameter. Note there is one tiny knothole visible on a black leaf; this is a natural occurrence in the wood used for weaving the basket.
