Anne Scarpa-McCauley Handwoven Honeysuckle Vine Basketry

Anne started her basket journey as a young child. Her job was to bring her goat herd to the fields and woods near her home, where they would munch on honeysuckle leaves. She would take the vines and weave them into baskets. She has been making these for over forty-five years and has the accomplished knowledge to create the baskets of her dreams.

Two of Anne’s basketry are in The Smithsonian American Art Museum Permanent Basket Collection: Cole-Ware Collection of American Basketry.
