Log basket…

This log basket started with a 4×4 underfoot base. This means that I used 8 base sticks. The sticks are not split but placed on top of each other and held by your feet whilst weaving. This gives a really strong base which is what you want on a log basket.

The bowl shape takes advantage of the natural curve in the willow rods as you weave. It’s highlighted even more by bringing the basket in at the top before bordering.
