- "New New England" is a series influenced by traditional American craft aimed at connecting consumers with the source of their products, bringing maker and user closer together. Consumers deserve deeper connections to the places and the people their products come from and that our emotional ties, nostalgia, and pride associated with our material things are what makes them worth having. Every piece in this collection is produced end-to-end within New England in collaboration with true craftsmen and craftswomen who imbue their objects with all the love and respect that honest hand-work is capable
- Locally sourced and hand-pounded black ash, textile-covered cord, plastic socket; 52" x 16" diameter
A peaceful, woven lamp made in the tradition of the basket-making Sweetser family of Northern New Hampshire. Solid ash legs incorporated into the weave turn the basket into a lampshade and the textile-covered cord informs the object as a modern light. This lamp was lovingly made, from tree to finished product, by Bill and Sherry Gould of Bradford, NH: westernabenakibaskets.com
