Fall Basket 8/21/07

Here is my first attempt at coiling. I used embroidery floss to coil around hemp. I thought it turned out quite well, but is very time consuming to do all that wrapping.

As always, click the pics to see larger ones.

It is very relaxing and learned that this method is really done more effectively if the baskets is circular rather than oval as it doesn't stack perfectly on top of the previous row very well when making the sides of the basket.
