first ever basket

here's a picture of my first ever freeform basket. ( A fair old while ago now)

made from old drift wood, roots, bark and rusted curtain wire all found on a walk on the Shaldon side of the Teign, combined with some recycled wire that was dumped at my compost scheme. I had only just started my basketry love affair then and I hadn't much idea of what i was doing, so I soaked all the wood bits in linseed oil to make them pliable and set about joining them together with copper wire gods eyes. I called it "Sea Witch Cauldron"
