“Spruce-root gathering and preparation is a knowledge that is held in a small group of contemporary weavers. For this basket, all the spruce roots were gathered and prepared by the weaver on Haida Gwaii. This is the first woven spruce root piece by the weaver.”

Juror comment: For a first basket, this is an outstanding effort. Roots split evenly, and irregularities in the shape of the basket are kept to a minimum. Really nice work! I look forward to seeing more from a very well-taught student.”
