Zebra Wood Vase

4" dia. x 9 3/4" tall
I bought the Marlys Sowers kit for this basket at the Stateline Weaving Retreat and finished it right after I got home. It features a zebra wood base, single-piece rim and lid; and dyed hamburg cane and flat oval reed. The basket is woven over a plastic tumbler which is glued to the base, so it is not only the mold, but also a liner for the vase. While the pattern looks complicated it is actually quite easy and fun to watch form.
