Coiled Snake Basket

A few months ago, my friend Sally had these old silk and silamide thread packages up for grabs.
So, I went for it, not knowing exactly what I'd be doing. I did  a bit of research and found that these types of packages were sold in the 1930's.
I've been playing with clay lately, and made some bases with holes, with the idea of adding on some coiling, or twining on top.  So I combined the base with the silk and silamide threads, and coiled them with wire.

I finished it with beeswax, and still need to another melting session.  See the little bits of wax? Thanks for the inspiration, Sally!
