Pots in Use

Finally filled the large woven basket I made with some fruit for a pop of color.

The hairline crack in the bottom center of the bowl doesn't affect the function. The basket holds a large amount of fruit quite nicely on our dining room table.

There are nine really large apples plus the mandarins piled high in the woven bowl. I am dreaming of a Waldorf salad.

Here's a flower in a small vase in the guest bathroom. The vase fits nicely on the side of the pedestal sink. We have visitors coming so we've been busy cleaning and sprucing. I need to put a small leaf plate on the other side for a soap dish. Next week we're expecting extremely cold temperatures. I hope to get back to the studio and show you some new work. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

    1. Hi Michele, thanks, the basket has a hairline crack in one of the crisscrosses in the middle center, doesn't affect it's usability but not perfect so I will keep it for display myself. I intend to try to make more because I really like this shape. I think the handles could be larger too.

  3. I love the fruit basket...just the thing since fruit likes to have air circulating around it.
