I've applied traditional coiled basketry techniques using organically grown sweetgrass and a pretty blue waxed thread to bind with. Sweetgrass is a joy to work with- beautiful light green with a lovely natural sheen and a fragrance that can freshen a room! "What's that good smell?" is what my DH always says when I'm working on one my fragrant sweetgrass baskets! This small basket is perfect for rings, pills or small trinkets.
This little round dish is tightly stitched by hand in a swirling pattern and backstitched at the rim. The coils are small, in keeping with the scale of the basket. My pottery glaze is food-safe. Basket is approximately 2 1/2" across and 1/2" tall.
