Coiled by Karen Kirkland for Valerie Miller

Coiled by Karen Kirkland for Valerie MillerThe gourd itself was left natural except for the inside and along the rim on the outside where a chocolate brown dye was applied and allowed to drip down the side of the gourd. The first fiber in the coil is kudzu and it is rather freeform, which I imagine is just like how the stuff grows. It really adds a lot of texture to the basket. The next 3 rows are Karen's beautiful yucca fiber coiled with dark brown sinew in a feather stitch. Just gorgeous!
