Marilyn Wald basket weaving workshop I took recently. This basket is about three inches by three inches by about half an inch wide. I still haven't finished the top of the basket and I have two other baskets in process. I may have bitten off more than I can chew taking on basket weaving right now. Being a beginner the basket weaving group moves much faster than I can go.
inflorescence from palm trees, to include in my basket weaving. For a wonderful photograph of a Bangalow palm inflorescence see Anna's post here. Asymmetrical and natural shapes like the ceramic basket I made above come to mind when I think of what I want to weave.
You won't want to miss my potter blogger friend, Connie Norman's letter G post this week, which includes pots by Gillian Parke, Gail Kendall, and Jim Gottuso. Connie's photography of these potter's pots in natural setting's are so imaginative including a pot floating in a bathtub!
In other news Lori Watts launched a kickstarter to develop a line of cone 6 reduction glazes and pots which take less energy to fire. Any reduction in fuel costs is a worthwhile endeavor for many reasons.
