For more than three decades, JoAnne Russo '78 has been making baskets inspired by natural objects. She incorporates materials ranging from sweet grass to porcupine quills into the delicate, intricate baskets she creates in her studio in Saxtons River, Vt. Three of her early traditional baskets (including the one at left) are being shown through Dec. 8 as part of an exhibition, "A Measure of the Earth: The Cole-Ware Collection of American Baskets," at the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
