This piece of textile art combines basketry with painting. The hand painted tray is part of a new series of bird themed baskets. I have been entranced by my local shorebirds!
So, here is BLUE HERON.

The hand painted base features a single, folk art, blue heron in teals,gray and black. The bird has been accented with a few streaks of sparkly metallic water blue.
The completed 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 inches high. The base is wood.
The basket has been hand coiled in a collection of teals to highlight the bird.
There is also brown, light aqua and black.
I make two sizes in this style. This is the smaller size.

I have photographed it with two large bagels so you can more easily visualize the size.


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 souvenirs from your water vacation... 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.
