Check out these fun, decorative baskets!
Courtesy of Marie Estorge
Marie Estorge keeps one of her decorative baskets on her desk at work. It gets a lot of love: Everyone wants to pick it up, to feel the fuzzy fabrics, and to examine the colorful weave of ribbons, beads, and yarn.
Her boss is a fan, too, especially enjoying the whimsy of the sculptural and nonfunctional form. “Is it a cake?” he asks. “Or is it a hat?” Then he flips the basket over and tries it on his head.
Estorge, a Walnut Creek crafter, loves experimenting with different materials, and sells the designs on Etsy. She is planning to make an all-metal version from nuts and bolts, and another one with zippers. Think of what fun her boss will have with that.
