Starry Night

As I'm working on my "new" class baskets for 2014 (gosh, those proposal deadlines come early!!), I finished one that has been processing for several months:  'Starry Night'.  Obviously, I'll need a professional shot of it to hopefully show the shine of the wire better (and thus the 'stars'), but I'm sharing it here, anyway.  The inspiration for it?  The blessed black, black night sky on Lopez, filled with stars.  (Techniques used: split spoke base, lattice twining, wrapping.)  It's only about 6" across, to keep it small so it may be completed within the normal class timeframe.
