PINE NEEDLE BASKETS

These small baskets are also made for Phoenix Obsidian Designs by Dr. Susan "Arizona" Gleason.   Pine needle bunches are coiled around with artificial sinew stitching them together.   You can choose here between different sizes and sinew color.   These baskets provide a good example of the basic coiled basketry found throughout California.   Pine needles became a popular basketry material when more traditional materials became harder to obtain.   It was not used traditionally due to the fact the needles do not swell when they are wet, thus hindering the use of such baskets for cooking.   This also was a traditional common pioneer craft brought by early settlers and based upon European traditional crafts, which allowed for some cross-cultural craft sharing.

SOAPROOT BRUSH

This tool is an extremely fascinating example of the ingenous use of natural materials.   The soaproot plant has a bulb with very fibrous outer leaves.   These fibers, when combed out, make the bristles of the brush.   The interior of the bulb is then boiled, creating a sticky paste.   This paste is coated around the end of the bristles forming, when dried, an extremely hard but not waterproof handle.

 Item #OT010A:   $35.00
Item #OT010A - Soaproot Brush
