Small Nest Basket in Annealed Steel

By Sally Prangley



1 in stock

Shaped to suggest a bird’s nest, this basket adapts traditional basket weaving to a less traditional material: wire. Nest Baskets come in two colors, bright silvery stainless steel and dark blackish annealed steel. Colorful vintage beads are added to the sides during the weaving process, and the rim is punctuated with a parade of beads. The artist sources most of her beads from vintage jewelry. Nest Baskets are made in three sizes that nest inside each other and are sold separately. Small Nest is similar to a cereal bowl in size, perfect for holding Peanut M & M's, pistachios, cotton balls, bracelets, or nothing at all!

Metal/other (annealed steel wire, vintage beads)
