The Artist

Amy Krone is an artist living in the forest of the Catskill Mountains. Her project, Cambium Lost Arts, is one dedicated to the revival of dying or forgotten practices of traditional craft. Currently, her focus is centered on the practice of hand-split white oak basketry in the Appalachian style—a journey that began in a used bookstore.
Combining anthropological research with experimentation and passion, Amy’s interest lies in reviving the forgotten. The conviction that old, discarded things can become new again is the animating spirit of lost art revival and what drives her to continue pushing the limits of form while staying true to craft traditions.
