More than 200 works of art, all measuring exactly 10 inches by 10 inches will be on display from April 18th through June 7th. Each piece of art will be sold for $100 each.

Once again, I experimented with multi-colored flat reed as I wove this large, 16" in diameter egg basket. I alternated rows of the colored reed with rows of natural cream reed. I started with the colored reed in the God's Eye on each side of the basket and ended with the cream reed .
It is important to keep both sides of the egg basket even as you form the two humps that make the distinctive shape of an egg basket. I continually check the eveness of the sides as I add additonal spokes to the basket as I weave.
The multi-colored reed is from a space dyed flat reed coil made up of periwinkle, hunter green and mauve. One color bleeds into the next on the flat reed giving a variegated color appearance when woven

This is a large Hen Basket. The inside diameter is 12" and the two side openings are 10" in diameter. The basket is a natural reed color with two wide bands of color on each side of the handle. The multi-colored reed is from a space dyed flat reed coil made up of periwinkle, hunter green and mauve. One color bleeds into the next on the flat reed giving a variegated color appearance when woven.
