Twig Basket

Another Charleston basket woven for me by a friend and created from all different vines found in a maritime forest--honeysucker, jasamine, grape, smilax, cross vine, Virginia Creeper, etc.

While I didn't quite achieve all the twiggy-ness of this basket - I like the shape and depth ... I'll have to try for a twiggier texture again.

Oh, this is beautiful and I love the way you've grounded it. You have simplified the detail of the twigginess very well too. Well done

The twigginess looks great to me, Lin!

Lin as someone who has occasionally made baskets these are fascinating, I havnt tried drawing them but yours look terrific. Glad you are enjoying some bits about my garden as I have enjoyed hearing about yours.

This is beautiful, Lin. What an interesting gift! I loved your drawing of the sweetgrass basket, too!

I love it! This is so beautiful and definitely looks twiggy to me! I especially like the composition and that you thought to put the basket on it's side.

It looks very twiggy to me! Your delight in the simple things around you is contagious, Lin.

Lin your handwoven basket drawings are fabulous and the baskets themselves must be to die for. Wish I could see them in person! How about a photo?? :o)
