Blending  Tradition 
With Creativity

Nantucket Basket

My baskets blend tradition with my own creative touch, challenging the notion of a "traditional" Nantucket basket. Lightship Baskets share common elements, such as using molds, cane weaving, odd staves, and nailed-on rims, yet they offer endless variations.

 Since 1989 I have worked to not only to be an excellent weaver but a complete craftsman in all aspects of Nantucket Lightship Basket construction and history. For over 20 years I've studied the history of Nantucket Lightship Baskets. Through working on repairs of old baskets, I've gained a a great deal of knowledge on tradition construction techniques and methods.
