    Kitanemuk Bottleneck Basket-3A

    This is another in a series of these I've done. Size is abt 7" x 7", turned from
    Sycamore, 1/8" beads, dyes & with my normal 4-step finishing process. The interior
    of this is not beaded/dyed. It does have a coat of "Terra Cotta" acrylic on the interior
    to seal/protect. Comments & critiques always welcome.Kitanemuk Bottleneck asket-3A.jpg

    I like this pattern better than the other one, maybe because there is more reed space at the shoulder? Who know...but is amazing as usual!!

    Jim, the name Kitanemuk sounds like it might be one of the tribes of the Pacific Northwest. After visiting Washington and Oregon a couple years ago, I became interested in turning some vessels in the style made by the Klickitat people. So far, I have only thought about it however. Your turning has inspired me to get off dead center.

    Bill....The Kitanemuk were situated in central, eastern Calif. Yes, I too understand the similar sounding tribes from the Pacific Northwest
    They did some fantastic weaving of baskets but I've yet to figure how to do the "weave" look in wood. Some is called twining and seems to
    always give a look of being done on the diagonal.

    I once was told that there is no such thing as a dumb question so here goes. Are these segmented and then beaded or are they colored this way? Anyway you look at it they are stunning.
