Coiled yucca basket, Debi Cates 2009
It's taken me a little while, but after three previous lumpy attempts, I made a decent basket just in time for Mom's birthday. It's about the size of an Asian rice bowl. The light center is from fronds found in the hidden, center of the yucca where it has yet to get sunlight.
Not only is it 100% West Texas yucca, it is 100% wild yucca growing in Debi's yard. At last, I found a reason to love the unwanted "weed." ;)
P.S. I'd love to hear from any basket makers out there, especially those that make baskets from natural, local materials.
