Sheldon Bogenrife

Sheldon Bogenrife is an Iñupiaq artist from Wainwright, Alaska; a village located above the Arctic Circle. A baleen basket weaver, he is noted for his superb craftsmanship. Despite the challenges of working with such rigid material, Sheldon’s baskets are known for a meticulously symmetrical, tight weave. He developed his basket weaving skills under the tutelage of masters Elaine Frankson of Point Hope and Greg Tagarook of Wainwright.
