Shorty Basswood Basket (Sold)

Sold - No Longer Available.
Use this little basket for the extras that accumulate during the day. The basket has a base and spokes made with the inner bark of American Elm. Eastern Red Cedar makes up the orange rows. The shiny greenish twined rows are of Rattlesnake Master leaves, a tall-grass prairie plant, once commonly found in Missouri. The black center band is the inner bark of Black Walnut. 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 thoroughly, 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.
