Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Baskets are one of the few things we still haven't learned to mass produce to look as good as handmade. Try your hand at 30 elegant basket styles using splint materials--wood and grass pounded or split into flat strips. Shapes include traditional egg, melon, feather, cradle, oriole, shaker, and others that have all but disappeared from sight. A complete guide to tools, equipment, and materials helps you select splints from rattan, cane, oak and ash, rope, sisal, and sea grass. Learn the old ways of gathering, drying, storing, and soaking splints from trees, bushes, vines, marsh plants, bulbs, grasses, and husks. Get special tips on handles, rims, bases, lids, paints, and dyes. Choose from ribbed styles like the Winged Egg Basket or the Oriole. Or a plaited basket like the Great Lakes, Cherokee, or Shaker. Or the spoked baskets like the Field, Provender, and Quiver. A full-color photo gallery showcases each basket, along with stories that tell how they evolved into their current styles. 168 pages, 8 1/2 x 11.
