Quilled Box Birch & Sweetgrass Canada Goose
Add an exquisite piece of art to your collection with this Quilled Birch & Sweetgrass Box! Basketmaker Paul St John created this delightful oval box. He starts with pieces of natural Birchbark for the top and bottom. Around these, he coils strands of Sweetgrass to make the box and lid. Then he fashions designs using natural and colored Porcupine Quills. Each box is unique!
Paul St. John is a Mohawk tribal member. He grew up in New York. His mother is Passamaquoddy/MicMac/Maliseet from Maine, where St. John currently lives. He is a multi-talented craftsman.
This Quilled Box features a mother Canada Goose with her Gosling. A few Cattails appear in the background. The Box measures 7.5″ x 6″ and stands 2.75″ high with the lid on. (Stand not included) Keep this box out of direct sunlight and away from water to preserve its color and integrity.
Display this Quilled Box with your collection, or use it as an attractive storage container!
