Vine & Branch Creations
Etta McCall are self-taught basket weavers and furniture makers. They say they
are following a divine guidance by creating items using methods taught to them
by God. The McCall’s have been making their artwork for more than twenty-five
years. Their children have all been involved in the business over the years and
Andrew and Etta feel that this has been an important part of their family
McCall’s use all recycled or naturally harvested materials. The heart pine
lumber comes from old houses that are being torn down and the vines are
collected from the woods. They mix the pine and vines to create unique tables
and chairs that are original, and no two are alike. Wisteria, grape, and
some kudzu vines are twisted together by hand to make baskets and furniture
that reflect the McCall’s respect for and enjoyment of nature.
The McCall’s’ works are also
available at their shop Vines and Branches, Fort Deposit, John Campbell Folk
Art School in Brasstown, NC, craft shows, and major department stores.
