Where Creativity Is American Made...
Designer Baskets by Derek
Each of Derek’s creations represents a distinctive flair for style and concern for detail. His designs are based on the traditional egg-basket form; however each has about it a contemporary quality. Most are crafted of grapevine, hand-dyed rattan and sea grass, an unusual material for woven baskets, and an aromatic one. The basket handles forged from grapevine allow the tendrils to dictate the basket’s overall shape. The vibrant colors of his baskets are frequently inspired by trends in fashion and home furnishings. Most colors are produced from commercial textile dyes, many of which Derek creates himself. Once completed, each basket is signed and dated by the artist.
Whether you are a collector, or someone who simply enjoys living with beautiful, well-crafted objets d’art, a Designer Basket by Derek is certain to please in many ways and for years to come. His work can be found in craft galleries and fine retailers nationwide.
