OCxTWM03 Walnut, thread, brass hardware
25 x 15 x 18"
Truly a melding of wood and weaving, this basket is maybe the purest example of our explorations in combining materials and techniques from our two studios. The richly colored walls of this vessel are woven directly on the floorloom, using scrap walnut strips as the weft and waste yarns from the larger scale powerloom as the warp. The weaving is then wrapped around a solid walnut hardwood base, and raised subtly on small wooden feet. A functional piece for storage, but also a showstopper in its own right.
