    Elegant simplicity - both the film and the basket. This was wonderful to watch. Stephen Jerome is clearly a confident master of his craft. Makes me want to make baskets... but his skills obviously have been honed over a long time through countless hours of practice. Thanks for sharing, Fitz!

    In case it doesn't pop up right away, here's a link to a follow-up video: an interview with Stephen Jerome and the filmmaker Heather Condo, along with some great info on the Wapikoni project:

    Very cool Fitz! I always wondered what was meant by "pounded ash". Now I know.

    Fabulous; both entertaining and educational. Great to watch a skilled artisan at work. You can sense his love for his cultural heritage. Thanks for the post.
