HAND-CRAFTED BIRCH BARK BASKET

Artist: Kononov Size: 9"X 7 1/4" X 6"

These beautifully intricate works are made by layering a very thin veneer of birch bark .

This art form began nearly two thousand years ago and is still a valued craft today.  Because of the natural properties of the bark, this wood can be worked in a similar manner to leather.  It is easily molded into shapes making it ideal for round and oval boxes and containers.
