finally finished and photographed

Finished this a few weeks ago but getting round to photographing it took a while longer. It takes a surprising amount of material to make something like this and in the end about 25 different juice cartons were diverted away from landfill to make this one little basket.

Bindweed Basket

This is the original bindweed basket that gave the site its name. Its tough as old boots and has held it's shape in spite of rough treatment.

a better picture

Here's a picture of the same basket with a few shadows to give a bit of a sense of 3 dimensionality.

prunings - random weave passionflower

The picture is not giving many clues away here of scale or depth. It was taken with a flash, which I think is what flattens it so much, finding a way of photographing these random weave types that shows them well is really challenging. The ones I did earlier were out of focus so I took these in the dark. Not ideal.
Dimensions wise it's:
100cms across
75 cms front to back
18cms high at the front
42cms high at the back
