Portrait of Jean Johnson

Jean Johnson lives in Germantown, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee and has been weaving for 17 years. Her baskets are woven primarily from splint reed/rattan. Although the reed starts out almost white, she dyes the colors, weaves the basket, and stains it with a natural walnut water-based stain. The stain gives the baskets the look of an antique oak or ash basket.

Because she is a self-taught weaver, her style is unique, not influenced by other weavers. Many of the baskets are her own designs. Some are common styles which are longer, shorter, bigger, or smaller than normal. For some, she uses oak or hickory handles. Others have reed handles that have been woven back up into the basket for added strength and then wrapped with reed. The rims are double lashed.
