Susan Ashley - Basketmaker and Gourd Artist


Having grown up in WV in a family with  Scottish roots, I love weaving traditional Scotch-Irish Appalachian ribbed baskets and incorporating antlers and other natural materials.  I also enjoy making pine needle baskets and weaving on gourds.

Creating these pieces was a joy for me and I hope they will be enjoyed by others who are drawn to the wonders of nature and appreciate the long history of basketmaking as an art form.
