Chubby Sphere Vase


Hannie Goldgewicht’s ceramic and pine needle basketry expresses her love of form and design with time-mastered workmanship.

Each piece is first hand-thrown on a potter’s wheel, then trimmed, fired, and finished with painting techniques and patinas. Then, the artist starts the weaving around the rim. The pine needles are hand-picked, cleaned, and woven with wax thread using the coil method. Each piece is one-of-a-kind.
