Small Trinket Basket
This basket by Theresa Secord, founding director of the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance, is woven from cedar, brown ash, and sweetgrass. It is based on baskets made generations ago by Secord’s family and other Wabanaki weavers.
Cedar is viewed as a potential replacement for ash, which is threatened by the emerald ash borer beetle. Maine basketmakers are looking to a future where their sacred wood may be lost for a generation or two.
Basket is 2 1/4″ high; 3 1/2″ high including the finial. It is 2 1/2″ at its widest point.
