Pine Needle Basket "Northern Rainforest"

Sale price$260.00
Only 1 available


This intricate basket is handwoven using hundreds of cured long leaf Himalayan Chir Pine needles (Pinus roxburghii) which I collected from fallen branches in the Botanical Gardens after a big storm. Although a little finer to work with than other pine needles I usually use, I love the softer golden colour they dry to. This basket is stitched together with different shades of tan, yellow ochre, and brown sinew, with the addition of brown Picasso seed beads. Woven in the centre of this basket is a 35ct natural cabochon rhyolite rainforest jasper stone. Coils are wrapped in brown and soft pastel green colours inspired by the wooded rainforests on the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, Australia. A tribute basket to a part of Australia I consider my second home.
Although delicate, it has been sealed with beeswax and clear lacquer for durability and comes with a hemp hook so it can also hang on the wall.
Dimensions 7cm tall x 24cm long x 22cm wide (2.8” tall x 9.4” long x 8.7” wide).
Centre stone dimensions 3cm tall x 2cm wide (1.2” tall x 0.8” wide).
4-6 weeks in the making and estimating a minimum of 40-60 hours of work to complete, just to give you an idea of how much was involved in weaving this basket.
