Wild Grapevine Designs

Baskets
Wild grapevine sticks form the ribs around which many lengths of vine sprouts are woven fast upon themselves, creating these one-of-a-kind designs.

It looks like a basket with a handle, but that's only half the story! Made by weaving vine sprouts to create a half basket on a wreath frame, Pocket Baskets will hang up flat against a wall, post or door. Natural Rustic Style (bark-on).


nestbaskets.jpg bottom view nest baskets.jpg Nest Baskets are so named for a real bird nest we found in a massive tangle of grapevines. The delicate structure, supported by living vines, was made from strips of grapevine bark and lined with rabbit fur. Nest Baskets rest slightly askew, adding a great deal of character to your outdoor garden, your dinner table, or holiday. Available in both the Natural Rustic Style (bark-on) and the Naked and Nude Style (stripped).

You may enjoy this Over-sized Nest Basket with a tall, curved handle partially wrapped in twine for comfort. Very sturdy and strength tested - for practical use in the garden and yard, or even inside for kid's toys or magazines and books, etc. Available in the Natural Rustic Style (bark-on) only.

Use for Halloween, Easter, a flower girl basket for a wedding, or simply a unique gift item. These baskets are also available with a curved, top to bottom, full length handle, placed along the side of the basket, for more of a pitcher look.

Naturally Embellished Designs
We use environmentally friendly practices to hand-pick and gather the beautiful colors and wonderful textures of the plants growing here, and dry them naturally to embellish our Tornado Baskets. Availability of materials is at nature's discretion and varies from season to season, as well as, year to year. But there is always something beautiful to work with!

Each embellished design is unique. Here are a few examples:

As shown above, a Tornado Basket may be fully embellished with Red Cedar greenery, Pine Cones and Rose Hips, or simply embellished with Witch Grass and Rye.
