Wire Basket

I apologize, yet again, for being away so long. But I'm so glad I'm posting to the blog today.

I hope Thanksgiving was great for all of you who observe it. Ours was excellent ... delicious food and no major kitchen mishaps--just one coffee spilling incident!

I usually show paintings or assemblage art, but today I'm showing you my latest basket created from jewelry wire.

I formed the basket around a vintage crock, sort of like a casserole, hence the "handles" on each side. I ended up having to break the crock in order to remove the basket. I really didn't want to break it, but it was the only way that I could remove the basket.

I'm making a lid for the basket, which I'll post later. Now all I have left of the crock/casserole is the lid that I'm using to make the wire lid for the basket.

This is all I have for now. I hope I'm not away from the blog for too long before posting again!

All the best,
