#Not for Sale - Lillie's Gullah Baskets
Lillie's Gullah Baskets

My wife and I were driving along the South Carolina

coast, near Edisto, when we saw a roadside stand selling

grass and reed baskets.  A gentleman named Howard

was manning the stand.  He told us that his wife, Lillie, had

made most of the baskets, although a few were made by

himself or one of their children.  The baskets were beautiful,

and the love and skill required to make them was evident.

  While my wife selected a basket to purchase, I asked Howard�s

permission to photograph the stand because I could already

visualize the drawing I wanted to make.  Recently we

discovered that Lillie has a website where you can read

more about these sweetgrass baskets.

 

Lillie's Gullah Baskets is a graphite drawing on 24" x 18" paper,

using a pointillism technique.  The original is not for sale, as

it is part of a private collection.  However we have a few giclee prints.
