David Dusina, Raffia Coiled Basket Maker

Click on the Title link above to see some fantastic and well executed examples of raffia coiled baskets made by David Dusina, an American now living in Switzerland.

David learned the coiling technique about 30 years ago from Ernistine Hanlon, of the Tlingit People, Dog Salmon Clan in Alaska. Dusina lived there for 10 years and was highly influenced by the weaving designs of these Native peoples, as is evident from his creations all carrying a Native American “feel.”

Besides visiting his lovely basket gallery, be sure to also look at the beautiful pictures of Alaska he’s posted; mountains, waterfalls, whales, fish and eagles.
