Both Beth and I are basket makers and along with Michael Sims own GH Productions Inc.-- The Basket Maker's Catalog.
Here are 2 pictures of baskets we have made. The first basket is an early-style Nantucket Lightship Basket. The staves, handles and rims are white oak and the weaving is 4mm binding cane. I wanted to create the rough but elegant look of the early Nantucket Lightship Baskets.
The next basket is a reproduction of an antique basket found in Allen County, KY. We call the basket Jessie's Egg Basket after Jessie Dalton whose father made the original. She used her basket to gather eggs. The original basket was made of hickory but we chose white oak for our basket.
We found a 1919 F.C. Taylor trapping catalog in our wash house hiding behind a stud. Even if you do not agree with the trapping concept, you may enjoy taking a look back in time.
Now, I do like to get outside and fish as much as possible. The boat we "grew-up with" was a 1957 Barbour Silver Clipper 16. This boat was made to fish the inlets and sounds of North Carolina. These days I mostly fish from a canoe. Here is a picture of our friends Jason and John Fraim. We were fishing on Middle Fork Creek early Spring 1998.
This virtual world is brought to you by The Basket Maker's Catalog.
|One of my projects is to publish my Father's Army Air Corps pictures. Above is a photo of a P-51 at sunset, somewhere in Germany late 1945. My father was a P-47 pilot in the 406th fighter group.|
