  • I have noticed something curious about Lene’s work process. She’s the only craftsperson I can think of who has not involved any outside sources to produce her work. No materials have been sourced or purchased at any point along the process. Think about that for a second. It’s quite impressive. These baskets are as handmade as they could possibly be and couldn’t be any more local.
