George Hart

George Arthur Hart grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. He is a wildlife biologist by trade and has devoted many years to the gathering, harvesting, and preparation of natural materials. He has studied with Native American and local artists. He excels in traditional black ash Cherokee baskets, and coiled baskets using natural materials.

Other interests includes making bent wood boxes, wood lathe bowls, and working with baleen. George and his wife, Jo Ann, run Wilderness Basketry and offer a variety of classes by local artists as well as themselves. They gather and prepare their own materials and choose to work in natural materials.

Here is some of George's work.
