Product Information

HB18110 - Handmade Hopi Wicker Plaque
This is a handwoven Hopi wicker plaque by unknown artist. A lot of preparation is done before a coiled basket can be made. The weaver usually collects the plants needed after July, however the materials that are required to produce a basket can sometimes be difficult to find, due to the lack of rainfall and growth of the plants. The weaver now more than often has to look further to gather the plants. Weaving a coiled basket requires significant skill and knowledge which is handed down from the women in the family. The basket depicts a sunflower design. This basket measures 12 1/4" diameter.
