Amphora

2020 – 8 X 3 1/2 X 3 inches

Waxed Linen Thread

Twining, Reverse Twining, 4 Rod Wale

With this basket I tried to push the limits of undulating shape inspired by memories of seeing so many Roman amphora in Italy.

I also experimented with a technique I developed to expose the spokes in sections that are double wall, combined with sections that are single wall weaving.

And, this basket has a multi stage rim where the outer wall wraps around an inner wall.
