This beautiful basket was made from half of a canteen gourd. (Think of a traditional canteen shape and cut it in half.) Because all gourds are unique, sizes and shapes will vary, although I will try to repeat the design for you. Although this basket is suitable for dry snack food -- bread, chips, popcorn -- it is a work of art. It is not washable and should not get wet.

The photos shown are examples of my work, representative of what I can do for you. As I create your chosen design, I'll try to get as close as I can to the same size and shape; but please keep in mind that your finished product might not look exactly like the one in the picture. (It might look even better!) Please keep in mind that art takes time. Each order is custom-made just for you.
