I’ve always had a soft spot for contemporary handmade baskets. Recently I came across this cute little baskets …
These baskets were made by the Wounaan and Embera tribes from the Darien province in Panama. They are hand weaved using a variety of reeds and palm fibers found in the rainforest. These tiny, vintage, baskets were restrung with a fine, leather cord. For sale here.
Another fun site I discovered is by a group of contemporary basket makers. The baskets of Maggie Smith are beautiful …
This is what maggie tells us about her work “Inspiration for my work comes from the natural world and the materials around me.”
“Many of my works start from a found object, which I build a form around, often using materials from the same location.”
Detail of one of her works.
