14” X 3”
This one of a kind, hand coiled pine needle basket was woven with local pine needles, usually 12-14 inches long, gathered from our property, then intertwined with natural colored, dried wild oats from our hill. The wild oats provide the glossy cream tones. The burgundy, green, and blue needles were colored with Rit Dye. I chose to retain the caps on a few of the needles around the exterior sides for texture and color. I included a thin gold braid around the interior rim for added shimmer.
This beautiful bowl is the perfect gift for a new bride just starting her home, or as a house warming gift. It is large enough and sturdy enough to hold fruits or bread on the table or at a meal. Enjoy!
