Willow Basket by Vicki HastKatie Horn
Vicki Hast donated a lovely example of basketry. Her piece is a traditional rib style basket that’s appropriate for use in the herb garden or as period décor for your home. Hast used several different types of willow to weave the basket, and the cordage in the “smile” of the basket is made from Siberia Iris leaves. Hast gathers materials from her own willow patch, where she currently cultivates nine different varieties.
