Class #48 – Cracker Basket – CLASS FULL

This useful basket was inspired by an antique Shaker black ash basket. Woven of finely prepared black ash over a wooden mold, the corner stakes are split to allow for the graceful shape of the corners. The darker heartwood stakes and the white sapwood weavers combine with the single lashed cherry rims to complete this dynamic basket.
