The Globe Basket is a modern take on a traditional hen basket, thought to have originated with the Cherokee tribe of America, and to have once been used to house a broody hen. While today it isn’t recommend to squeeze a sitting bird into it, it’s rounded, swooping sides do create a generous interior space perfect for harvesting vegetables from your garden, or for taking with you on trips to the market. This basket is made with a hand-split White Oak frame, and woven in with White Ash weavers.

*as this is a made to order piece, please expect 6-8 weeks for this to ship.

*please note that the actual basket you will receive will vary slightly from the photo as each basket made is unique due to the nature of it being hand made.

About the material:
I mindfully hand-select each White Oak tree from my land in the Catskill Mountains in New York State, then carefully split each log by hand using only an axe and a knife to create thin, pliable strips. This Lost Art comes from the Appalachian tradition, with it’s origins in Cumbrian spelk basketry. This is a one-of-a-kind piece takes approximately 28 hours to painstakingly make by hand.
