    How long do these take to make?

    Wow Such talent! I have one. I gave the other one away to my sister that was a little basket with a lid that had raffia accents on it. It was from the toyobe national forrest gift shop some thirty years ago. A little one about seven inches around was thirty dollars way back then. It is amazing the precision these are made with!

    Museum quality work... Just beautiful.

    These baskets are so incredibly gorgeous and I LOVE the antler handles. You should be able to sell these easily and get a good price for them. They are very lovely. Thanks for sharing. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Fabulous work - very clever to use the antlers for a handle. Love those.
    I like your pic too - I have a 74 lb yellow lab that sleeps with us. Luckily we have a king sz bed & the 54 lb basset is too short to get upn there too. ;)

    They are lovely. Whilst the materials are natural your baskets have a quite sleek contemporary look...a lot of woven baskets have a more rustic look, I like that too, but yours could look great in a modern interior.

    I have several pine needle baskets that my grandmother made. They've lasted a LONG time and I love them!
