Artist's Description

Bear Grass is a plant belonging to the lily family although it looks like grass. The plant can grow to about 6’ tall.
“Native Americans in Oregon, Washington state, and British Columbia have traditionally made beautiful baskets with the stems and roots of bear grass. When the leaves are dried in the sun in preparation for making baskets, they turn a creamy white. Combined with other materials of different colors, beautiful designs were woven into the baskets. Hats and other practical objects were also made of bear grass.”
