Iron basket

I wanted some height for a corner, so we designed this iron basket and filled it with moss and curly willow. And, because everyone always asks, yes...Mark made the base of the basket, too.

Mark wove the iron pieces of the basket and riveted them to the top ring.

A great collaboration! And how nice it must be to say, this is what I want and presto, someone makes it for you.

Sort of like being the designer version of Bewitched!
