Another Giveaway! For Basketmakers!

Here is another giveaway, just for you! This one will appeal to basketmakers. Now you can win a pottery basketry base, made for coiling pine needles, grasses, or other fibers. It is stoneware, fired to cone 6 (very hard) with multi colored glazes, browns and oranges, very Autumn themed. The design is a leaf, with a coordinating handmade bead that you can use to embellish the same basket, or use it on something else. I made this pottery base and bead myself.

Everyone is eligible for this giveaway, it does not matter where in the world you live!

HI Pam, Ok in your shop this is the one I like best

because my grandpa (who died when I was 12 (near 50 years ago)) made this style of pine needle basket, the wooden base, the spiraling raffia stitches. Seeing these always bring thoughts of grandpa to mind. Lovel memories. Thanks.

Pamela, I love your little items, well your big ones too, but this little turtle is the cutest! Reminds me that we used to catch them as kids :)

Hey, you Purple-toed gypsy! Love this little hummingbird nest. I hadn't seen them before coming to Etsy, and I was so intrigued by them - they are so cute :)

OH, I wish I could make baskets...well actually I could, but I don't need another obsession. I love the baskets you make with the pottery centers. I will tweet this, perhaps catch some basket people!
