This traditional women’s work basket is comprised of red and yellow cedar bark as well as blueberry dye, prepared using all hand-foraged Pacific Northwest materials. Woven using traditional Haida methods.
Haida artist Lisa Telford creates stunning works using red and yellow cedar bark and spruce root. She harvests and prepares all her own materials, often taking her hundreds of miles from her home. Bark is traditionally stored for one year and then further processed before weaving starts.
