Barbara Mincer (Colorado & Wyoming)

Barbara Mincer’s former students and fellow teachers bring her the antlers that they find on the ground in the Laramie Peak area of Wyoming. Deer and moose generally shed their antlers each year. The antlers become the defining design element of Barbara’s baskets. The artist adds even more interest to her baskets by dyeing the reed, adding bits of handspun yarn and paper, or attaching decorative beads.
