a question for you long-time ceramics buffs....
Back in the late 60's to early 70's my mom did quite a bit of ceramics. It was a big craft trend then. Hopefully someone can tell me more about this beautiful easter basket she made.
It was made in a class so I don't know how she did it, other than it looked like yarn woven into a basket shape. I know they actually soaked the yarn in a liquidy clay and wove it over a form. I guess when it was fired the yarn burned out leaving the clay behind. It had an arched handle that was also woven in the same manner. She glazed it in a dark brown shiny glaze and it was so pretty! At Easter she would display it full of ceramic eggs with fancy colorful glazes.
Sadly the basket did not survive and was thrown out years ago but I have never forgotten it. I would love to find directions on how to make one like it, so if anyone can help me I would be forever grateful!
