“Have You Heard the Owl Call Your Name?” Art Basket

Here’s something my wife and I haven’t done for quite a long time, the “Have You Heard the Owl Call Your Name?” Art Basket.  When we first started our art careers, we collaborated on quite a few tiny little art basket loosely based on the Nantucket Lightship style of basketry  (see more of our past baskets here).  My wife produced the baskets and I decorated the lids.

Here, we’ve created this basket from black walnut, yellowheart, superfine carriage cane, copper, waxed Irish linen and naturally-shed moose antler.  The basket is about five inches in diameter.  The skull finial is one of my press-formed-then-chased copper owl skulls (more about that can be found here).


Thanks for looking!
