Sacred Water Flows In All Directions
Double woven rivercane basket was started with 96 rivercane splints that I harvested, split, peeled, trimmed and dyed myself. I used natural dyes of black walnut and blood root for the brown and orange that are woven within the basket. The most traditional basket weaving material of the Cherokee. Rivercane baskets were woven to last generations and were used in daily life for containers, mats, food preparation, etc. One of my favorite baskets to weave. A heirloom basket that will be enjoyed for many generations.
