The finished basket with a bound edge - a good second go at this shape. The first try, with copper HDMI braids, did not go as well...
Final dimensions: 17" x 16.5"
Materials: Cat 5 and VGA cable, wire hangers
This is the first basket for the show that I've finished. It's good to know that I'm able to complete one with binding. The colors and directionality are growing on me... I was apprehensive at first. It's nice how the thin silver weft fades away, and one really focuses on the long, striated warps. It reminds me of the linear patterns and bright colors in sand and rock in the Mojave. From far away, they blend together, but up close, they are incredibly unique and vibrant. Full of life - they bring joy and softeness to a place that seems so harsh.
