This beautiful all natural basket with lid is made of honeysuckle vine. After she gathered the vine, Mary boiled and then stripped its bark.


 

Mary is a member of the Cherokee Nation who is an established artist. She creates contemporary and traditional baskets using her unique personal touch. She has blended traditional Oklahoma Cherokee double-walled basket techniques with her own special methods she has refined over the years. Contact Mary at mstone777@aol.com for pricing information.

 


These baskets represent Mary's latest contemporary works. Each basket is named - from left to right "Southwest," "Sky and Earth," and "Kiva Steps."


 

Mary teaches the art of Cherokee basket weaving, which is a great way to relieve stress. Contact Mary at mstone777@aol.com for class times and pricing information.


 

Shown here is the side view of a more traditional basket, as beautiful as it is useful.

A view from the top of the same basket. Notice the level of symmetry that she achieves.
