As cheerful as it is useful, this piece of textile art combines basketry with painting.

An offshoot to my original SLICED series, TROPICAL SLICED is a new series that leans more toward the exotic fruit. For me, painting this series helps to chase away the winter blues.
These organizer tray baskets will brighten up your world too. You will want more than one!

Here is Kiwano, or horned melon!

The hand painted base features folk art depictions of sliced kiwano against a putty background. The colors are putty, white, beige, green and yellow. There are also some orange hues.
The artwork has been protected with a layer of clear coat.

The basket measures 16 inches long by 5 inches wide. It sits 3.5 inches high. The base is wood.
I make two sizes in this style. This is the larger size.
I have photographed it with an orange so you can more accurately gauge 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 them with toiletries, perfumes, soaps, a bottle of wine or well, fruit... 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.

12 Planned Baskets in this series include:
Fresh fig
