Ply-Split Mandala Basket by Linda Hendrickson

This basket was shown in the exhibition "Beyond Tradition: New Ply-Split Fiber Sculpture" at Contemporary Crafts Museum and Gallery in Portland, Oregon in 2004.

The design grew out of experiments on variations of the Lotus Basket. Here I tried something new with the perennial question of what to do with the ends of the cords -- I used my sewing machine to sew close zig-zag stitching around each petal and then cut off the cords. Then I went over any beige threads with black magic marker, and finally saturated all of the sewing with Fray-Check.
