Throw Back Thursday

Filling-in technique for Appalachian ribbed baskets.

Throw back to 2000 when I photographed and wrote instructions for "filling-in" for ribbed baskets. I've got to look through old Zip discs to see if I can find the original images. All I can find are the low-res .JPGs I posted to my online instructions at

I was able to locate the old photos! Now to recreate the set of instructions in a version that is print quality.

A Nest of Three

Martha Wetherbee Shaker Baskets

I purchased this nesting set of three Martha Wetherbee black ash Shaker baskets a year or so ago. They are signed and date 1985. This is about the time that I became aware of Martha and Nathan's work. It was a few more years before I was finally able to take a class with them.
