Asymmetrical Cedar and Cane : Using wire and dyed binder cane over cedar bark spokes, this asymmetrical basket will be twined using 2 X techniques. Initially the spokes will be wide, and then cut narrower to achieve a twisted shape.
Intermediate to advanced weavers can manipulate the shape with this method.
Beginners will learn the nuance of twining with X’s on a symmetrical shape.

Equilibrium, a coiled horsehair sculpture by Amanda Salm
