Birch Bark Container

I made this small birch bark container about a year ago, the pot is simply scored and folded into shape, the rim is Fuchsia wood that is held in place with some artificial sinew that is whipped around the entire top edge, it's not the biggest pot in the world, but Birch Bark in my part of the world is pretty thin stuff and even getting a piece this big locally was a small miracle in all honesty,  i use the  pot to hold business cards at shows and events i attend.

  1. Very nice! The Indians and pioneers in my neck of the woods made containers fron the bark of yellow poplar. I keep threatening to try it some spring.
