Bill Roeder traditional German fine-sken willow basketry - group picture “Fine skein willow has become my passion--understanding the growing of the willow plant, the processing and refinement of the material and the subsequent exactness of the woven vessel are the appeal. Each layer of the process determines the quality of the next layer. Achieving the highest level of refinement in the woven piece, and each piece thereafter, is the goal.”
