Table of Contents

On the island of Nantucket, the lightship basket developed over many decades into the distinctive basket so highly prized by collectors today. The fascinating history of this basket and its makers is richly illustrated with color photographs that detail construction and show beautiful examples of the craft. You'll be amazed at the rigorous life aboard the New South Shoal lightship, the crew of which produced beautifully constructed baskets, many of which are shown here. The history of the basket is updated to the present day to include contemporary artists and designs. For the collector, Martha Lawrence provides details to consider in evaluating antique and contemporary baskets. She also takes the reader through easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for the construction of a basket, including accurate photographs of the stages crucial to producing an authentic piece. Explore a craft whose heritage is as enduring as the baskets themselves. Following the success of the first edition, this already marvelous book has been improved with additional photographs and up-to-date pricing information.
