Introducing a new style of horsehair basket bowl - the Wave. This one is the Pink Twist Wave, coiled of white blonde horsehair and stitched with pinkish orchid colored (lavender) sinew. The pottery piece it is based on is glazed with matching orchid glaze, (also hand made by me) and patterned in spirals that mimic the coiling. The pottery and horsehair do a wonderful undulating dance. Embellished with tiny pearl beads that echo both the lovely blonde tones of the horsehair, AND the delicate pink color of the sinew and pottery piece.
Would make a wonderful gift, great for a jewelry holder or small catch-all. Lovely in a shadow box on the wall.
Having taken a blue ribbon/first place at an art show, still it is fashioned after another award winner. my "Ancient Wave" piece took 2nd place Miniature Professional at the North Carolina Basketmakers Association Convention Exhibition, which is the largest basketry guild in the USA. I am known in basketry and art circles for my weaving, especially my horsehair pieces. For more, including a list of my awards, please see my website at http://PamelaZimmerman.net
