Willow Market Basket (Sold)

Sold - No Longer Available
The base and spokes of this basket are made with Willow bark, as is the braided handle. The orange bands are the cambium side of Eastern Red Cedar inner bark. The black band is Black Walnut, and the dark brown band is American Elm. The green twined rows are of Rattlesnake Master leaves, a tall grass prairie plant that was once very common in Missouri. The rim is finished with a technique commonly used among the Northwestern coastal Indians, called a Swinomish fold. The dangles use primary seed beads called Sibucau seeds from the tropical rainforest, with antique trade beads, as well as horn and seed beads. All the woven materials for this basket were gathered and prepared entirely by hand, from the standing trees and plants to the finished basket.
