Cedar And Elm Fringed Basket (Sold)

Sold - No Longer Available.
This little basket is woven using several different native species of trees and plants. The silvery grey of the Willow weavers is the outer bark, which is left on when harvested. The orange is Eastern Red Cedar. Dark brown inner bark of American Elm, with the cambium side facing out, makes up the middle band. The shiny greenish twined rows are of Rattlesnake Master leaves, a tall-grass prairie plant, once commonly found in Missouri. And the white twined rows are of Basswood fiber, the inner bark of a tree also known as Linden. The bark is rotted for six weeks in a pond, and then rinsed, and the inner bark is peeled apart into tissue-thin layers. All the materials for this basket were gathered and prepared entirely by hand, from the standing trees and plants to the finished basket.
