Reed Basketmaking in Tequisquiapan,
Weaving materials are soaked to make them pliable.
The reed is inserted into a wooden base, then the sides are woven.
|Some baskets are woven over a wooden mold.|
|Salvador Mejía Peña makes furniture (notice the elephant table-base in back) and other sculptural pieces. He incorporates a metal frame into very large pieces, like this suspended chair.|
