“I have been a “Basket Case” since the 1980’s. I’ve made all types of baskets: Rattan (round reed and flat reed) Oak, Ash, Twined Wax Linen, Coiled, Paper, Natural Vines, Cattails and “Pulled Warp Baskets”. I’m all about color; almost all of my baskets have some color on them. In the early to mid 80’s I had 2 sales reps who sold my baskets to stores in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania areas.
