Auction Description

2021 Smithsonian Craft Show - Stephen & Tamberlaine Zeh by Stephen & Tamberlaine Zeh
We hand craft baskets beginning with finding the tree to the finished basket, using the tools and methods of the Maine woodsmen, Shakers, and Native American basketmakers. Our jewelry work began when we made tiny buckles for our miniature baskets. We hand crafted them by forging small pieces of brass. We then learned that we could draw gold and silver into fine strands to weave into tiny baskets of gold. Our work is influenced by the basket designs and craftsmanship of years gone by. The radiating weave of a round basket bottom became the sunburst series of earrings and necklaces. The twelve and six strand weaves are reminiscent of the braided reins Tamberlaine made for her horses. The hand forged facets from hammer blows recall her grandfather's forge at his farm in Maine. Every piece we create is hand fabricated. A basket starts with a search for the perfect brown ash tree. The log is pounded to release the strips, which are then hand scraped and cut to width in preparation for weaving. The handles and rims are hand split carved and green bent using an ax, froe, and drawknife. Our jewelry pieces begin with melting gold or platinum, pouring to form an ingot, then forging, rolling, and drawing it into fine wire. Intricate pieces are shaped and the edges bright cut to reflect light from within the piece. Fine, pliant strands of 22k gold or platinum are interwoven into a basket form. Forging 18k gold or platinum strengthens it as it is shaped into rims, backs and settings for gems. Together, we are the only ones who work on our baskets and jewelry. Each piece is made by hand - one at a time. - Custom Orders - Our jewelry pieces can be crafted in sizes to fit. You may request your favorite metals eg. gold, platinum, or combinations, and your favorite gemstones.
