This colorful cauldron has been handmade by wrapping a variety of quilt-quality cotton batik fabrics around a clothesline core. The shape of each basket is constructed on the fly. There are no patterns, just imagination. I love to watch the colors blend as each basket takes shape. I call these creations "Colorful Cauldrons" because that's what their shapes remind me of as they curve upward from the bottom of the basket. I use a 3-stitch zigzag to give a stronger hold between each layer of wrapping and durable quilting thread.

This is about the smallest basket that my sewing machine allows me to make. It comes in several "rainbowy" shades, with green batik handles to accent. Handles are securely stitched to the inside of the basket three rows down for strength and durability. They have a cotton/bamboo batting center to give them more shape but are still flexible.

Bottom Diameter = 6 inches
Top Diameter = 7 inches
Height = 5.5 inches
Volume = ~ 3 quarts

Each cauldron comes in it's 'natural' form. I do not pre-Scotchguard or coat my baskets with any other chemicals due the the controversy over the health hazards they may pose.

Item comes from a smoke-free home. I do my best to accurately describe the each item, but colors may vary from monitor to monitor. If you have any questions, please convo me!
