Northern Voices: Leah Lemm Visits Artist and Former Educator Kent Estey at his Place in Naytahwaush
This was a project was made possible through the support of the Giizhigan Art Incubator located in Mahnomen, Minnesota. This project also features my brother Clyde Estey's Black Ash basketry. This was an honor to work with my brother. He and my brother Brad Estey are very talented black ash basket weavers.
