Alice Ogden as Featured in Martha Stewart Living

I have the honor of saying that not only do I have many of Alice’s baskets in my collection, but I’ve also been to her home to take a class from her.

 Martha Stewart
The beauty in baskets is that they come in all shapes and sizes, for practical use and domestic artistry. 🧺 Start collecting heirloom baskets from our favorite artisans like Alice Ogden who fashions her heirloom-quality vessels. "Everything I make began with green leaves on it," she explains. πŸƒ She searches local swamps for a fast-growing black ash to fell and haul home. Then the self-taught artisan‘s works embrace form as much as function: Nested sets hold towels and throws; minis with attached lids keep jewelry and mementos ensconced. πŸ’ And exquisite acorns and open-weave tubs simply inspire awe in the beholder. ✨ Learn more about some of our favorite basketmakers at the link in bio!πŸ‘†πŸΌπŸ“·: @lennartweibull
