Fred Tomah Katahdin Weave Basket
A black and white Katahdin weave medicine basket, a style that anyone familiar with Fred’s work will immediately recognize. As the name would suggest the basket pays tribute to the tallest peak in Maine, Mount Katahdin. Each of the four peaks is meant to represent one of the four tribes in the Wabanaki Confederacy: the Micmac, Maliseet, Passamaquoddy, and Penobscot. It is made entirely of natural and dyed ash.
Molly Neptune Parker Fancy Basket
A traditional (barrel style) form basket created by Molly Neptune Parker composed of ash, sweetgrass, and cedar. It exemplifies modern basketmaking through its use of bright colors and non-traditional materials. The cedar is particularly noteworthy because it is an example how basketmakers are rethinking materials in the wake of threats from the emerald ash borer in Maine and the Maritimes.
