Natural Baskets

At one time or another, my parents , my sisters, and I, all made baskets to sell. These are some of mine from the late 1980’s, made in Elrito New Mexico and Gathersburg MD. I gathered materials from the woods in both places. Some have comercial cane reed with yarn accents, but some are entirely of foraged materials. I used yucca, willow fronds and bark, scrub oak, grape vines, bones, antlers, and drifrt wood from the arroyos.

  1. Hi Stephen,
    I love those, my favorite to make for sure…as taught by your father. I once taught that technique as a summer camp art teacher back in the 80’s while in college . Hope you are well.
