(WTNH) -- A local artist has been weaving for over 30 years and she makes some very unique "home-grown" baskets.
Tina Puckett, "Master Weaver", started weaving in 1981. She lives in Winsted and uses a type of vine that grows locally.
Tina is much influenced by the bittersweet vine that grows in the northwest corner of Connecticut.
The character of each piece of vine literally dictates what form each basket, wall sculpture or piece of furniture will take.
