This hefty basket is made from a bunch of different types of old, recycled wire and weed whacker wire. It has a lid, which could also be used as another wire dish. I like to turn the lid upside down and set it on top of the basket, so then you can fill the basket and also the dish while saving space. Do you know how long it takes to unravel and separate all these twisted up bunches of color-coded wire into individual pieces before you can even weave them into a basket like this? Help an artist out and buy this basket that took approximately 1000+ hours to make.
