Dolly Barnes Maroon Basket Vase
Dolly Barnes is an apprentice of her mother, renowned basket maker Molly Neptune Parker. This basket is dyed a beautiful maroon color. It includes braided sweetgrass and a chain weave of natural colored ash. Weaving baskets around vases has been a long-standing tradition among Wabanaki basket makers. It allows the basket to be filled with flowers, though dried flowers are preferred, so spilling water does not stain the ash.
