Description

Baskets have been made by the Cherokees in the same way for at least a thousand years. We know this because pottery shards have been found with the same familiar woven pattern imprinted on the outside of clay shards as seen in modern Cherokee baskets. This might suggest baskets came first to the people, then pottery. Pottery might have evolved by applying clay to the inside of baskets then firing to burn away the basket, leaving the basket imprint in the clay vessel.

The adorable little basket is true to traditional Cherokee design and technique. It is a testament to the basket makers skill and dexterity to be able to make such a small work of art, accurate to Cherokee design. It is made from reed, a commercially available plant material that is relatively new to Cherokee basket makers. Traditional basket making materials include honeysuckle vine, buck brush and river cane. These materials are still used however are extremely labor intensive, which translates into much more expensive to make. Reed has allowed Cherokee basket makers the freedom to add vibrant colors, explore designs while still creating baskets in the traditional way and that are more affordable for more people.

This basket is vase shaped and has a light walnut dye applied. It measures about 3 inches in diameter at the mouth and is about 2 3/4 inches high. See the last photo for comparison to an average-sized basket.
