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.  Giclee prints are available.

Giclee reproductions are on archival paper. The colors of the giclee are as close as possible to the original, however some differences may occur.

Images will be slightly smaller than paper size listed below due to a minimum one inch border required for printing.

Prices include ground shipping to the United States.  Contact the artist for expedited or international shipping charges.

Georgia residents will have 7% sales tax added at checkout.
