Large basket with leather handles.  It is a work of art, yet very useful as a container. It's amazing to me the love and work that go into these baskets.

It has a filled base and is done with basket reed, stained walnut.  There are two bands of reed dyed blue. The base is 10 inches square, and comes out to a 14 inch round top.  It is 9 inches tall.

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.
