Small bowls are approximately 2.5" tall with a 4.5"
This bowl uses some of the new colors being
developed for the art form.
The baskets are made out of the multicolored,
coated wires that run within telephone cable.
As technology moves toward fiber optics, cable wire
is recycled or produced for craft use.
One technique that has now developed is the soft
wire method which requires weaving of the colored wire
as they would in making traditional palm or grass baskets. These are woven creating beautiful colorful, stylish shapes with patterns of spirals, reverse swirls and dots.
Telephone baskets are very popular and good quality

appeal to you and that we can continue to sell their
