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.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Board of Directors
I’m pleased to announce that I’m now on the board of the National Basketry Organization! It’s a wonderful community of makers and collectors of all forms of basketry.
I’ve gotten invited by a number of Guilds across the country to present about African baskets from my project Baskets of Africa, and also about my own baskets.
My YouTube Channel
Each video is about 4 to 7 minutes and is focused on one topic. I’m making the videos short like this so you can easily jump straight to the topic you need help with.
