I start with my own hand-formed stoneware basket center fired in my kiln. The center is a misty brown with a cinnamon brown and peach head peering upwards. (The head is part of the pottery base.) It's coiled with organically grown sweetgrass. Sweetgrass is a joy to work with- beautiful light green with a lovely natural sheen and a fragrance that can freshen a room!
This little oval 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" x 2 1/4" and almost 3/4" tall.
This cute basket is a perfect gift for anyone who likes a little whimsical fun mixed with practicality!
