Round Shallow Plate - Tohono O'Odham Basket
This handwoven basket with open "wheat" stitch and split stitch star design is by Dianne Antone and measures approximately 7.75 inches in diameter. The edge of the basket is closed stitch and has black Devil's Claw pod added as a finishing touch on the border.
Plant materials are hand gathered from the Sonoran Desert for basket weaving. The interior green coils (warp) are native beargrass and the white, open "wheat" and split stitches (weft) around the coils are sun bleached soaptree yucca. Keep away from sunlight to maintain color variations.
Measurements are approximate.
