HERBS is a series of painted baskets inspired by the garden season.
The baskets in this series feature common herb plants.
As fun as they are useful, these textile art pieces combine basketry with painting.


So, here is Basil!


This hand painted base features a folk art depiction of fresh basil leaves.
The colors of this basket include a combination of bright primary green and dark celery.
The artwork has been protected with a layer of clear coat.


This smaller basket measures 6.5 inches long by 3.5 inches wide.
It sits 3.5 inches high.
The base is wood.
I have photographed it with a kitchen egg so you might more easily gauge the size.



This is a great size for stashing coasters, utensils or cards, but would work for any smaller storage needs.
And, what a thoughtful gift this would make!
Fill it with toiletries, perfumes, soaps or seeds for the ultimate in gift giving.

My baskets are made by the coiling method of basketry. Strips of fabric (both new and recycled) are wrapped around an inner cording as the shape is formed. The inner cording makes these baskets sturdier than other fabric, crocheted or felted items. Each one is entirely handmade with no machine stitching.
Each one is unique.

PLANNED BASKETS IN THIS SERIES ARE:

Rosemary
Chives
Garlic
Cilantro
Dill
Sage
Basil
Thyme
Chamomile
Parsley
Oregano
Wormwood
Sassafras
Sweet Woodruff
Cumin
