Ely’s baskets are Nantucket style. He switched to a more free-form style by using styrofoam molds and has been using baleen for weaving his baskets. Before becoming a basket maker, Ely did woodworking and has taken several jewelry classes; both of these crafts come into use in the making of his baskets.
