1980*25 Years of Basketmaking*2005

We are a husband and wife team who worked together for 25 years to create baskets that are beautiful and unique.  In 1978 we began making rough Appalachian style baskets as a hobby. In 1980 we became full time professional basketmakers.  Over the years we perfected our skills and developed many styles that were distinctly our own.  From humble beginnings we brought our baskets into the art world with our development of the LightVessel. All of our baskets are signed and dated.

In more recent times our lives have led us away from basketmaking. Darryl is streamkeeper and manages a property here in the Pocono Mountains while Karen is recently retired from work in the local school district. What remains on our website is a very small sample of our life achievements in basketmaking. We are proud of our accomplishments and thankful for the many wonderful folks we met along the way!
