Eric Taylor

Eric Taylor lives in middle Tennessee and has been involved in traditional basket making for over twenty-five years.  His love for working with wood and the black ash tree inspired him to experiment further in the art, where he started creating his own contemporary designs that combine the elements of the Shaker and Nantucket baskets.  He has won several awards and has been featured in multiple publications.  His baskets have been shown in the Cole Ware Collection at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

The Nantucket Historical Association preserves and interprets the history of Nantucket through its programs, collections, and properties, in order to promote the island’s significance and foster an appreciation of it among all audiences.
