Gourd Basket 03-BB #1872 By Barbara Bellchambers
6”w x 7”h
Gourds, reed and twisted sea grass, all being natural, go together well. This gourd has been painted bright yellow inside, and varnished on the outside. One side has been accented with crackle, covered with bright metallic hues to blend in with the gourd. Variated yellow/orange/pink dyed reed has been used for the weaving, along with natural coloured twisted sea grass and a hint of gold cord woven into the design. Coloured beads add interest and create spaces in the woven reed. Baskets are a great place for collections, stones picked up on a walk, keys for the house and car, just use your imagination.
