Katherine Lewis began weaving willow baskets in 1992 and now works full time as a basketmaker. She grows a large selection of basketry willows on her farm near Mount Vernon, Washington, allowing her to choose from an array of natural colors. Her goal is to weave baskets that are functional and durable while reflecting the natural beauty of the willows. Several of her baskets were acquired by the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum as part of the Cole Ware Collection. Katherine’s baskets are also in use in hundreds of homes across the country. For more information visit her website: http://www.dunbargardens.com.
