Birchbark Container with Bark Panels


Handmade Birchbark Container with Bark Panels

Add this unusual Birchbark Container to your collection.  The artist used spruce root to bind the pieces of Birchbark together.  She cut out scalloped panels of Birchbark and attached them with the light side out to the top of the container with more spruce root. She created the cover with Birchbark and a spruce branch.  Imitation sinew holds the cover to the container Deerskin Leather Lacing  can be untied to open the top. The crafter added a base to this container with a separate piece of Birchbark and some rough trim pieces.  You will see ‘Rebecca LaFramboise Chippewa’ written in red on the bottom.
