Billie Ruth Sudduth - 10/12/2021

Accomplished basket maker and beloved New Bern resident Billie Ruth Sudduth passed away on Oct. 12. Her legacy, however, lives on through the impact she had on those around her and her intricate exhibits that grace the halls of several museums. In her own words,”I think that my legacy is that I opened a new world for basket-makers by getting baskets off the floor and onto pedestals as art objects people want to collect like they collect glass and pottery, and that baskets are now seen in an entirely different light.”
