In Memoriam – Billie Ruth Sudduth

Photo of Billie Ruth SudduthAccomplished basket maker and beloved New Bern resident Billie Ruth Sudduth passed away on October 12, 2021. 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, she shared her feelings on her work and life. ”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.” We are maintaining the JABOBS website to honor her work and share with others her unique talents.
