Basket Weave Cane
by Mia Rox
Materials Needed:
  • clay in colors of your choice and black or white
  • Pasta machine
  • Nublade or tissue blade
Step 1:
First step you will need to make 6 skinner blend logs. These are approximately 1/2" wide.
Step 2:
After you have made all your skinner blend logs run them all thru the Pasta machine on the thickest setting
Step 3:
Stack them all together.
Step 4:
Wrap the stacked log with a thin layer (a middle setting on your pasta machine) of black. Compress to eliminate air pockets.
Step 5:
Reduce the log to 8 1/2" allowing for end waste. Cut ends off and cut 4 -2" logs. Arrange them in the pattern above, or experiment and find a pleasing pattern of you own!

Step 6: Look at some of the other varieties I have done. A simple change in contrasting color (white). Or... simply reduce even more and arrange in the same pattern! Good luck and always have fun!!!
