During the past year I shared a little history and background for each of the baskets I made and posted on this blog. This year as I finish a new basket I will post a photograph of the basket along with a brief description about the basketweaving process. I hope you will continue to enjoy viewing my baskets.
The new year is a time to inventory basket supplies after a busy fall of basketmaking. I try to create baskets using the supplies I have on hand. This allows me to design baskets of various sizes and variations of basic basket styles. I combine reed of various colors and sizes not dictated by a specific basket style.
Small square-based basket using blue and violet splints and cream and colored weavers.
Round basket with green splints and a bamboo handle.
