This three-color, continuous weave reverse twill cathead vessel, with an additional collar rim, is comprised of over 30 steps. It is made with paper and hand painted with acrylic paint, using an ombre design of metallic copper and teal for the vertical spokes, and gold metallic weavers for the horizontal zig zag weavers. Spokes and weavers are machine cut, and the interior and exterior rims are hand cut and lashed on with waxed linen thread. The collar rim is hand woven separately with a reverse twill pattern, lashed onto the vessel, and then finished with hand braided cording trim.
