Chaco meets Acoma

My first attempt at a large basket illusion. The piece is about 9.5 wide by 12 tall. The piece is a segmented holly glue up. The patterns were influenced by the patterns found on Chaco Chocolate Storage Jars and the work of Melissa Antonio an Acoma potter. Finished with a clear matte finish.

      For a first attempt, that sure does look like some skills used in it's creation were in a high state of development before taking on this challenge.....very well done, indeed! :D

      Wonderful piece and well done. did you have any problems with the burning on the glue lines of the segments.
    • Jim McLain
      @john lucas The glue joints dulled the beader a little faster but did not cause any problems with the burning.
