Sturdy Summer Totes

I saw these friend wonderful totes at the Chester Gallery last week. I love them!

My friend and well-know basket maker, Sosse Baker made them as prototypes for a class that she's teaching at Wesleyan Potters in January. They are both Cherokee patterns. The bottom one is called the "Chief"s Coffin". I can't figure out which design I like better. I don't actually think she intended to sell them over the summer, but I know I want one. Now. I mentioned that they are sturdy and they are. You could carry two bottles of wine to The Blue Oar for a riverside dinner. They would certainly make a fun summer purse or a great knitting basket.
I'd love to see an orange one. Time will tell.
