Gathered Basket

Gathered Basket

You may have heard of “gathering baskets”… utilitarian baskets used to hold items, mainly functional.  Well, I’ve titled this “Gathered Basket” as I gathered lots of different materials to create this basket!  The body is clay that has been stretched while thrown on the pottery wheel.  It was fired in a Raku kiln using the Obvara technique to give it a burnt, wood-like look.  I then wove a birch bark panel into the side, raffia on the top and added some glass beads and a found wooden handle.
