Maine Indian Baskets: Jeremy Frey Point Basket
There are a number of elements that contribute to this basket’s exquisite beauty: the shape is wider than a tapered vase, but more graceful than most bulbous ones. The strong reddish color is calmed by the soft grey weavers. The rims of both the cover and the body are trimmed in sweetgrass, accompanied by a stylish, curved sweetgrass band just below, on the body. Undyed points, as well as other splints provide a contrast with the dyed splints. The plain fine weave bottom allows the eye to rest before the graduated points begin to climb up the body.
Frey’s signature finial completes the design.
