Dona Look
Algoma, WI
2009 USA Fellow

This award was generously supported by the Windgate Foundation.

Basket maker Dona Look has developed a unique style of sewing birch bark with silk thread to create elegant vessels that show the influence of Scandinavian design. She received her BA in 1970 from the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh. By minimizing color and adornment in her work, Look focuses on surface texture, geometric volume, and implied simplicity.
