Jane splits her basket making time between historical reproductions using recycled materials as is the featured basket, and traditional new baskets. She also makes Nantucket style baskets with visual pleasure but contemporary uses. As the original “Nantuckets” were made for everyday use she believes it is possible to still mesh beauty with function. All molds rims and handles and now some scrimshaw is done by the artist. This allows for the continued ability to fashion special requests and continue her artistic growth. Jane’s mission continues to be to offer the continued functional beauty of the traditional Nantucket style basket to be used and enjoyed.
