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 points are 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.
