Basketry Alchemy | Vote 2020
Cael Chappell’s basket making grows from his love of basketry. During his years of travel across Africa to meet and work with basket weavers, Cael discovered that basketry is as diverse as it is universal.
Cael is inspired by global weaving traditions to create his own unique baskets. He conveys his interpretation of places, people, things, and ideas through basketry.
