Original Basketry

Helen Lee is a Bristol, Rhode Island-based artist. She interprets classic designs into refined, modern, stylish basketry. Meticulously woven with natural cane, and more recently incorporating sweet grass and ash--each basket is a one of-a-kind piece of art. 


Helen’s designs have been on display at museums around the United States, from The Museum of Fine Art in Boston, Massachusetts to the islands of Nantucket at the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum and Aquidneck at the Newport Art Museum.


Helen’s basketry is divided into three categories: Traditional Handbags, Modern Interpretations and Accent Pieces. Each basket is made to order; details, from the handcrafted wood handle to the ebony carving, are individualized to the owner’s taste. Please browse the collections to get inspiration for your own, personalized Helen Lee Basket.
