July Double-Wall

In this basket I've used encaustic medium (a combination of wax and resin) melted into the surface of the basket which adds a richer look to the color, actual strength and a more tactile feel to the basket. The basket doesn't have a flat bottom (on purpose) so it will sit slightly off center. The outer basket has a gentle bowl form. Just before joining the inside and outside baskets together at the outer edge, I inserted glass marbles, which will roll around inside adding sound and weight to the basket, as it is handled.


  1. I think this is something which needs to be seen in the round - and handled. Its tiny 2-D picture doesn't do it justice. Bring on the touchy-feely blogging.

    Love the idea of the marbles rolling around.

  2. @mountainear, you can click on the photo and it gets much bigger, but I'm afraid you won't be able to feel the gentle vibrations from the marbles going round and round ...

  3. Oh this basket is incredible. What great work you do.
