Double Bottom Gathering Basket

This double bottom round gathering basket  was  another basket  I made during my time at Common Ground 2012 in Joyce Schaum’s  Splint Woven Basket class.

The basket begins with eight natural colored splints woven in a circular web pattern.   This becomes the visible bottom base of the basket.    Once the base is about nine inches in diameter eight colored splints are added on top of the natural colored web.  They are woven into the base, alternating with the natural splints.  These colored splints make up the visible inside base of the basket.

The sides are gradually raised up to form a round container.   This basket is eight inches high and fourteen inches in diameter.   I added two side handles.
