Thread: Pedestal Basket

  1. #1

    Pedestal Basket

    Looking through a book recommended by Jim Adkins as a source of inspiration, I saw some pictures of pedestal baskets, a style I hadn't seen before and I had to give one a try. This is my attempt at copying a basket originally done by Lucy Telles in 1910. A big thanks to Jim Adkins for his help and advice. Hard maple, 11" by 6". C & C welcomed.

    It's absolutely beautiful but please excuse my ignorance. Is it turned or woven ???? I can't imagine the hours that went into it.

    That is wonderful work. OMG....you must be cross-eyed. That much pyro work and I would be all knotted up and have a migraine from the fumes....and I do use a fan blowing over my shoulder to push the fumes away...learnt it from Molly Winton.

    Nice, nice work!!
