The Garden Baskets are hand crafted in the style of the traditional Maine baskets I began making over thirty years ago. These are ones we use in our gardens every day.
They are a practical and sturdy basket. Of the very highest quality of craftsmanship and selection of the materials, these garden baskets are built to last for years of real use.
The Harvest Basket is just the right size to take to the garden for a selection of greens and all the fixings for lunch or dinner. Later in the summer we will take one to the woods to gather black trumpet chanterelles. In the fall we use the harvest basket for harvesting fruit in the orchard.The Harvest Basket is a traditional square bottom to round top basket. It is hand crafted with either a smooth hand-scraped finsh or the natural textured brown ash splint and has hand split and carved rims and handle with old fashioned cut copper clench nails.
The Tomato Basket is designed to hold a nice picking of fresh vine ripened garden tomatoes. The broad square shape lets tomatoes and delicate fruits lay in shallow layers to keep them from bruising.
And this is a great pie carrier. Tammy uses one for a pie basket, taking her home-baked apple pies to family picnics or to share with neighbors.
The hand split and carved rims and handle with cut copper clench nails contrast nicely with the texture of the brown ash splint or it is available in the smooth hand-scraped finish.
At the height of the gardening season, with corn and beans and peas ready every day, the Garden Basket is the one we use. Its generous size holds a bountiful crop and it is strong enough to carry a heavy load.
It is a wonderful market basket, a perfect size for trips to farmer's market and the grocery store.
Very well built with superior craftsmanship, the Garden Basket will last for generations. It has heavy hand split and carved rims and handle and is hand woven of either a smooth hand-scraped finsh or the natural textured brown ash splint from the Maine woods.
Gather herbs for the kitchen and flowers for the dining room in this beautiful Herb and Flower Basket.
The wide shallow tray is perfect for delicate boughs of herbs and fragrant flowers.
Bring silverware and dishes to the patio or deck for summer dining. And it is a great basket to serve and display breads and pastries.
When the raspberries are ripe we can't resist venturing to the bear trodden paths of the raspberry thickets in the Maine woods. These are great little baskets to gather berries for breakfast cereal, shortcake, or jellies and jams.
The Berry Baskets will find a place for a host of uses in the home or garden. A basket is a nice way to organize a dresser top or vanity. With a liner they are a wonderful to display flowering plants.
Blueberry scones, piping hot, are one of the many delights that await the owner of this Stephen Zeh Bread Basket.
A basket with a warming cloth is just the thing to hold baked goods fresh out of the oven.
This Oval Bread Basket is a simple yet pleasing design. I use a wide weave to give the basket a warm, homey feel. The natural splint texture of the weavers, set off by the hand carved brown ash rims, adds to the beauty of the basket. With daily use the Bread Basket will develop a rich patina and become even more beautiful with age.
The Oval Bread Basket is also a wonderful basket to use on the table and in the kitchen to ripen and display fruits and vegetables.
