This one resulted from my wife’s suggestion that I try coiling a stepped pryamid. So here it is , realized in longleaf pine needles, waxed linen thread, and glass beads (on the inside). One end up it’s a ziggurat;
the other end up it’s a coliseum.

My background as a retired chemical engineer/patent and copyright attorney, self-taught as a pine needle basket-maker has equipped me to try to realize in longleaf/slash pine needles, waxed linen thread and glass beads anything that is even approximately rotationally symmetrical. Each stitch is pulled through and tightened in place using a pair of needle-nosed pliers. And no two baskets are alike. See more of my work on my website https://nubblepoint.weebly.com
