Meet : Stephen Zeh

Posted by

On page 113 of Living you will find an image of several handled baskets nestled neatly inside one another. These hand-woven beauties are brought to us by basket maker Stephen Zeh. baskets-015-md109818_vert

What's unique about these baskets is that Stephen has a hand in every step of the process. He forages the woods near his home in rural Maine to find ideally aged brown ash trees which he cuts down himself. He scrapes the wood into splints, then begins the process of forming his baskets. Join Stephen on his journey of making a basket start to finish by watching the video below.
