Robin Lazore

Robin Lazore began weaving in her teens, learning from elders such as Mary Jocko (a relative) and Irene McDonald. When Mary retired, she passed on some of her handmade basket forms to Robin. Robin uses split ash and sweetgrass as materials. She is known for her strawberry and pineapple twist baskets.

Robin Lazore’s baskets are available for purchase through the on-line gallery shop of the New York Folklore Society: New York Traditions.


The gallery is made possible with the generous support of the
William Gundry Broughton Charitable Foundation.
