There are so many things I can think of to use this basket for. It's just the right size for a fruit basket. Or heap it full of brightly colored glass balls at Christmas. Balls of yarn would be pretty in it, or guest bath items.
It has an 8 1/2 round wooden base. Pat has woven it 6 inches tall, and it opens up to 9 inches at the top after bumping out a little from the bottom. The reeds are stained walnut, with deep red woven in.
Pat Huckins is based in Greenville, on Prong Pond, and has been weaving baskets for many years. She learned to weave at a class in Hallowell and has enjoyed it ever since. She has taught many classes in the past and her favorite student and fellow weaver is her nephew Levi. Levi is a bright young man with Autism, though he does not let Autism define him. He loves to travel, surf, down hill ski, swim, and compete in Special Olympics. Levi and his Aunt Pat have started a new venture selling their baskets on Moosehead Marketplace. They hope you enjoy the baskets as much as they enjoy making them.
