This basket shows Marion Hildebrandt’s appreciation for the natural beauty of the objects she uses to construct her pieces. She fabricated this basket from pine needles on which she left the thick, rough roots intact. The roots add texture to the surface of the basket and create a lively pattern and rustic quality.
