HERBS is a new series of baskets which was inspired by the arrival of garden season.
These textile art baskets combine basketry with painting.
So, here is Wormwood.

Besides some medicinal uses, it is an ingredient in the spirit absinthe, and also used for flavoring in some other spirits and wines, including bitters and vermouth. Wormwood was sometimes also used instead of hops in beer.



This hand painted base features a folk art depiction of a sprig of wormwood in bloom. It was painted against a lavender background.
The colors of this basket include lavender, gray and taupe.
The artwork has been protected with a layer of clear coat.


The basket measures 12.5 inches long by 4.5 inches wide. It sits 3.5 inches high. The base is wood.
I make two sizes in this style. This is the smaller size.
I have photographed the basket with an apple to help gauge the size and colors.



This is a great size for muffins or rolls at the table, but would work for any tray-type storage needs. This size is also perfect for the bath. It easily fits on the back of the toilet tank and is great for holding personal toiletries.


And, what a thoughtful gift this would make! Fill it with toiletries, perfumes, soaps, a bottle of wine or well, herbs ... 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.

Rosemary
Chives
Garlic
Cilantro
Dill
