Fibonacci Too uses the numbers from Fibonacci’s Nature Sequence to create the spiral weave. The directional change is the Golden Ratio. The base is a herringbone twill.
The basket is a cat’s head, hand shaped without the use of a mold. It will sit balanced on its four feet or tilted on its side. The rim is carved on a shave horse with a draw knife. The weavers are dyed with iron oxide dye which takes two weeks to make, a week in the dye vat to obtain the rich black color and a week being rinsed in a salt, vinegar, and water bath to set the color.
The dye is as light fast and color fast as a dye can be.
Now in my 34th year of basket making, I am as passionate about weaving as when I made my first basket.
Several museums have Fibonacci baskets in their permanent collections including the Smithsonian and the Museum of Art and Design
This is the first Fibonacci Too I have created. It is shipped priority mail with tracking and is signed, dated, and numbered.
The basket measures approximately 13 inches high by 17 inches diameter.
