I wove this basket a while ago. I was pondering some deep life mystery because it was entitled "Is There a Better Way to Love?" For the life of me I can't remember what the issue was. This is good because whatever it was, it has been resolved in my life and my inner being. I altered the basket and gave it a new life including its new title, "Moving Forward." Or you could just call it a driftwood tray.

I like to wrap twined reed around driftwood from the Chesapeake Bay. The shape of the basket is determined by the driftwood, and by how willing the reed is to cooperate. The result is frequently a pleasant surprise for me.

People often ask what I would put into my baskets. Since their function is sometimes sculptural rather than as containers (I don't like boundaries, do you?) my answer is usually, "nothing. I would put nothing into this basket." Some look at me strangely while others understand. If you must use the basket as a container, try seaworthy things like shells, sea glass shards, or glass fishing floats.

This basket measures approximately 15 inches across and 5 1/4 inches high. You can place it flat on a table or shelf, or hang it by inserting twine in an inconspicuous spot between the reed. And if I remember its original story, I'll convo you!
