Basket by Pamela Caskey

Here is another lovely basket made with a pottery base from my MakeABasket etsy shop. Coiled by Pamela Caskey, for her daughter, as a Christmas gift, I think. The pottery base features two hands, a large one and a small one, and an apple passing between them.

It looks like Pam used many different colors of binder, incorporated nutslices and faggoting! This basket was alot of coiling! She embellished it on the outside with a matching apple bead. I love the bands of wrapped color in the basket, Pam! Nice job. Thank you so much for sharing these images with us!

If you are a member of the Pine Needle Group, you may have already seen Pam's basket, as she posted it in the photos section there. That is a great place to meet other weavers and share information about coiling!

To purchase pottery bases, bead embellishments, sinew, and coiling tools, please visit my MakeABasket etsy shop. I am listing new pottery bases right now, including new designs. I am also open to suggestions for new motifs you would like to see in pottery bases.
