Embracing a breathtaking range of techniques, styles, and materials, beautiful basketry offers more options than ever before. And these 500 exquisite artisan pieces will open crafters' eyes to the varied and wonderful possibilities. These baskets, made by top creators from around the world - including Ed Rossbach, Michael Davis, Lillian Elliot, Gyongy Laky, Patti Lechman, and Mary Giles - as well as the best emerging newcomers, range from exquisitely functional to purely decorative, from classical to ultramodern. In addition to traditional twill, rattan, and reed, the artists have incorporated more unusual objects, such as plastic, paper, thread, and metal wire - even seeds, fish scales, and newspaper.
