Passamaquoddy Basketmaker

One of the renowned Neptune family of basket-makers, Peter is known for his skillfully crafted work baskets, including hampers, pack baskets and fish scale baskets. He also makes drums and sweetgrass braids.

At the age of eight, Peter learned basket-making from his father. For the past twenty years, he has specialized in rugged, functional work baskets. Peter Neptune's work often combines the classic work basket style with unique, artistic fancy weaves, unseen in other contemporary work.
