    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. 10 3/4 inches long x 7 inches wide x 2 3/4 inches high.
