Description

Native American style hand crafted basket of sweet grass with a center terra cotta clay center depicting Serpent Mound in Ohio. This entire basket was hand made by me. I grew, collected, dried and sorted the sweet grass and also hand sculpted the terra cotta clay start in the center. It has been glazed with two different colors of green and I used artificial sinew to make the grass basket. This is not a Charleston Gullah style basket, this basket was made the old way as the woodland people here in this part of the country made them in the 1800's and before. It's an art that is being lost and not many people make them these days. This basket is round and measures approximately 5.5" X 1.5" tall.
Sweet grass represents the hair of our Mother the Earth. Sweet grass is related to the North and the body, it is cleansing to the body and spirit.
This sweet grass has been grown organically in my yard, respectfully tended and harvested in the old way with the traditional offerings and prayers of thanksgiving to the Creator and plant spirit. .
Simple coiled baskets like these have been made by native peoples for generations. They used these fragrant baskets to keep clothing and everyday items fresh and clean and also to keep ceremonial items in when not in use. Baskets were made in different sizes for different purposes. Very small baskets were sometimes made to hold umbilical cords and some tribes made special shaped baskets to hold personal items such as scissors, awls and other sewing items. Mats were also made by weaving sweet grass together. When I make my braids I save these shorter pieces for baskets such as this. This is my 12th basket and my third in the Serpent Mound series. It took many hours to create and frankly I lost track of the time, I have been working on it for several days. Your basket will turn brown over time as the grass ages but the wonderful smell will remain true. Do not store in direct sunlight. This basket is not sprayed or coated with any preservatives; it is left in its natural state as intended. This is a beautiful little basket, what you choose to store in it is up to you.
The last photo is not included in this listing, it is an example of some of the center basket starts I made using a ceramic start of Serpent Mound which I also made. Just getting started making these and might be more available here soon. If you have a specific thing in mind you'd like to see for your basket center just let me know and I can make you a custom order.
