The rigor required to create a Nantucket lightship basket puts the lie to any cheap jokes about learning the craft. “If these baskets are made perfectly,” says Leslie Goldsmith, “they should be able to hold water.” Consumers today associate the baskets “with the oval purses and a lid,” Goldsmith says. But she and her fellow weavers in the Nantucket Basket Guild are drawn to the historical legacy and precision of the craft. “These baskets are made the same way sailors made them in the 1800s,” she says.

The calabash is a graceful gourd with a swelling belly. As a vessel, it has been used in nearly every indigenous culture in the world; to hold seed and grain and for ceremonial purposes. With its ancient history in mind, craftswomen Valarie James and Liz Cunningham of Sonoma County, Calif., have re-envisioned the calabash for a contemporary clientele. Allowing each gourd to speak to them, the two create handsome vessels, inlaid with silver and rare stones, stained and burnished.Their works, and the works of other artisans who have turned to ancient and ethnic cultures and the natural world for inspiration, will be on display at the American Craft Council Craft Fair at the Baltimore Convention Center and Festival Hall this Friday to Sunday.

When Homewood was completed around 1808, the house was one of the most stylish examples of Federal domestic architecture in America. No wonder Charles Carroll Jr., its owner, wanted the most fashionable furniture to fill it. And Baltimore was just the place for producing some of the most elegant and sophisticated furniture in the fledgling United States. The resulting union was a perfect marriage of architecture and furnishings. That marriage is regularly on view at Homewood Museum, located on the Johns Hopkins University campus.

When driving down Baltimore National Pike in Ellicott City, it's easy for eyes to wander. The myriad restaurants and shops all fight for attention with colorful signs and promises of limited-time deals. It's enough to give you a headache. But tucked away in the Enchanted Forest Shopping Center - behind the defunct theme park, around the corner from a grocery store and out of view from the pike - is a bar and restaurant that is clearly interested in providing an experience not typically expected at a strip mall.

In a narrow hallway on a high shelf, a sign sits next to an intricate wreath of looped vines, feathers and dried flowers. “Flowers feed the soul,” it says.  That hallway divides the front and back rooms of Natural Gatherings, Rick and Jane Barger's shop on Main Street in Bel Air. For the Bargers, that message rings true.

Just because you're on vacation at the shore doesn't mean every drink has to come with a tiny beach umbrella. Pitch the slushy or cosmopolitan, and think more along the lines of craft. Craft beer, that is. For a long time, beer drinkers lacked choices beyond "light or dark?" But the increasingly popular craft beer movement has expanded in imbibers' minds the possibilities for beer. Independent microbreweries have existed for years, but America's growing appreciation of small-batch, handcrafted products - and their never-quenched love of beer - seem to signal that this trend is not going away.

Devin Mack was in a figurative drawing class at Ithaca College more than a decade ago when his professor handed him a roll of wire and said, "Here, make a figurative drawing out of this. " Mack, who was studying cinema and photography at the school, made his first sculpture and took the first step into a career. Today he continues to make wire sculpture "large and small" out of everything from coat hangers to precious metal. Indeed, probably one of his best known sculptures is a 12-foot-tall honeybee outside of Baltimore Honey, a community-supported apiary in Woodberry.

Red Emma's has been open for a decade - a relatively short time in a city full of history - but as one of the first organizations of its kind in Baltimore, it has the feeling of an institution. Named after early 20th century radical and Ukrainian immigrant Emma Goldman, or "Red Emma" as she was dubbed by the media, Red Emma's is a collectively owned, politically "radical" bookstore cafe - a gathering spot for like-minded thinkers but also a cafe serving well-executed, straightforward vegetarian sandwiches and snacks.

With lawmakers still far apart on how to overhaul Maryland's bail system, legislative leaders and the O'Malley administration have cobbled together a short-term fix that involves an executive order and recruiting private attorneys for little or no pay to represent poor defendants. At the direction of legislative leaders, a joint House and Senate committee has set aside $10 million in the state budget to address a ruling by Maryland's highest court that the current bail system is unconstitutional because it fails to provide lawyers early enough in the process.

Unless you've been held hostage in a Loire Valley vineyard for the past several years, you're aware that beer these days enjoys much of the cachet that used to belong only to wine. Indeed, boutique breweries abound on these shores, and it could almost be said that beer has achieved much the same snob appeal that wine enjoyed for centuries. The phenomenon has myriad adherents and has undoubtedly increased the sales of beer exponentially, arguably without really harming vintners' bottom lines, either.
