Sarah Sockbasen, a young Penobscot basketmaker, has re-created a purse basket based on one held in her family for generations. Curlicue weave, sweetgrass and ash handles. This is an extremely charming piece: it is usable, but for conservation purposes, we would not recommend it for every day use.
The rich brown tones and subtle black dyes contrast beautifully with the natural colored ash.
Basket is 4 3/4″ diameter x 6 3/4″ including handle x 3 1/4″ deep

This basket lies on its side, as an acorn does (bottom is not flat). Under the lid of the basket is a turtle, and inside is a sweetgrass prayer braid.
Prayers for Humanity Basket:
“The acorn is a symbol of life and growth. Everything is connected, represented by the spiral weave. I pray for world peace, for a world full of compassion and tolerance. 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!”
