Woven Pottery Basket

Working on something new this month.  I’ve done my first woven baskets.  I did one round and one square.  I added a braided handle to the round one.  These are decent size baskets and will hopefully be good to hold fruit on your counter or bread on your table.  Come back and visit often and see how the project progresses.

Fresh clay woven over the forms to dry to leather hard.

Braided handle installed on leather hard basket.  Plastic cups in place to keep handled from slumping.

Bisque fired and waiting on some glaze… what color should I pick?

…and the finished product from above.  I decided to glaze in Blue Rutile.

The handle is a bit slanted, but overall I’m happy with my first woven item.  There will definitely be more of these in my future.
