Covered pack basket
Passamaquoddy basket maker Gabriel Frey is son of Gal Frey and brother of Jeremy Frey. Gabriel’s baskets are of the utilitarian type, yet are aesthetically very pleasing. He makes the ash baskets in the old way, with no nails or glue.
This basket is made in the style of pack baskets, with a bulge that was designed to fit against the hull of a canoe. The leather cover peels back to expose the entire contents of the basket.
This basket is rugged and is meant to be used; it need not sit on a shelf, though that can be done as well.
Basket is 10″ high x 7 1/2″ wide x 4 1/4″ deep
Frey used vegetal dyes to create the maroon colors.
