Nationally acclaimed Sweet Grass weaver, Henrietta Snype, has been weaving for decades and has had the high honor of having her work displayed in the Smithsonian Institution. Each piece is a true work of art and becomes more and more rare as we see the art form decline due to over-development and a lack of interest from younger generations to learn the art form.
One of the most traditional sweet grass basket designs, the rice fanner was used to separate the rice grain from the husk. Pounded grains of rice were placed in the basket and tossed into the air for the wind to blow away the husk and leave the grain. This piece is a must have for all sweet grass collectors.
