Skokomish Basket
This basket was considered unstable for display due to slumping and structural damage as the sides collapsed under their own weight over time.

The object was photographed before and after treatment and tested for water sensitivity. the treatment focused on humidifying the securing the damaged areas, followed by humidification and reshaping. Finally a custom support insert was fashioned to give the object an internal structure to prevent future damage.
