There is nothing quite like holding a willow basket in your hands - to feel the heft, to smell the willow and to dream of uses for it. Many of you have asked about my baskets, so I'm trying this page to show some of the my work so that you can see a little of the variety of baskts that I weave.  Prices and inventory vary and I prefer for customers to shop here at my studio. I also have some baskets for sale at my classes. I'm happy to make arrangements for you to visit the farm if you are in the area.
