Small Appalachian Market Basket
It is dyed with a special stain I make to make the wood look distressed. It will become more beautiful with age. It looks like it came out of a barn decades ago and will last for decades to come.
I left a career as a school psychologist and have been a full time basket maker for 34 years. Many of my baskets are in private and museum collections including the Smithsonian and the Museum of Art and Design.
The basket is signed, dated, and numbered. It measures 15 inches long by 11 inches wide by 11 inches high.
