A good day’s work

A good day’s work. Now that all of the ribs are in it will just be weaving, weaving and more weaving.

While I used to almost exclusively make ribbed baskets, I really hadn't made any in the last 15 years as I was focused on Shaker- and Nantucket-style baskets. In preparation for my week-long class last year at the John C. Campbell Folk School I had to make new samples of the projects we would be doing. This totally rekindled my love of making ribbed baskets and I have really enjoyed getting back into that form.

I am very excited with how this rectangular ribbed basket is turning out.
