Sarah Sockbeson Teal Gold Mini Urchin Basket
Sarah Sockbeson, a young Penobscot basketmaker, has enjoyed great success with her richly colored, tightly woven baskets. In 2015, she won top awards at Santa Fe Indian Market, one of the highest achievements in the Native American art world.
Also in 2015, her work was included in the Portland Art Museum’s Biennial Exhibition, alongside several other important Maine Indian basket makers.
This miniature basket displays Sockbeson’s skills at weaving and color design in a very small package. It is quite a delight to see. The darkened antler finial is a perfect companion to the woven basket.
