Award-winning, original design antler baskets, contemporary free-form sculptures and antler wall art are handwoven by Wisconsin basketmaker artist, Cathryn Peters.
Creating one-of-a-kind (OOAK), original design antler baskets, antler art sculptures, and antler basket wall art has been a passion of Cathryn’s since 1990. Her rib-style contemporary antler basket pieces are a decorator’s dream and a collector’s prize possession, perfect for home or gifts in any setting.
Each creation is lovingly woven to be distinctly unique and different from any others. Calling on her years of weaving and innate sense of shape, color combinations, and texture, Cathryn works with the male antler and the female vessel form blending them into one.
Woven Basket Scupltures Just for You!
We’re sure you’ll agree these antler basket art pieces are a perfect fit for any decor, adaptable to either a rustic cabin, contemporary home, or corporate office as the perfect decorating accessory or gift.
Commission and custom pieces are always welcome, arranged by email.
Cathryn’s natural, organic woven antler art has been featured in The Crafts Report, Basket Bits, and Basketmaker magazines as well as the 1999 reprint edition of Splint Woven Basketry by Robin Taylor Daugherty. Her baskets are also in many private collections, regional and national galleries and exhibitions.
Antler Basket Weaving Process
A variety of naturally shed and harvested deer, moose, reindeer and elk antlers are used in each one of Cathryn’s antler basket sculptures. The antler is an integral component, becoming either the handle or focal point of all of her creations. Each antler tells its story and “speaks” to her, suggesting the form it wants to take.
Sustainable materials such as cattail leaves, sweetgrass, birch bark, wild willow, diamond willow, willow bark, lichen, moss, pine cones, tamarack branches and cones, and red osier dogwood are gathered respectfully by Cathryn and incorporated into her baskets along with commercially processed imported rattan reed.
