Hanging Woven Vessels

After making rimed gourds, I found I had a growing collection of left over gourd tops. I wanted to find a way to incorporate them into a woven vessel. I experimented with adding reed spokes to the gourd tops to weave round and flat reed to create a free form container.  I added a handle to make the forms a hanging vessel. Each vessel is a unique shape.  Some are thin and others are rounded.  Some vessels have natural colors and sliced walnut accents.  Other vessels are bright, bold and whimsical. They are a lot of fun to make.  I hope you like them too.
