Ply-Split Braided Baskets: 
Exploring Sculpture in Plain Oblique Twining
by David W. Fraser

David Fraser, Ply-Split Baskets

Published June 2014 

This book with 176 images, including models, illustrates the versatility of plain oblique twining, a version of ply-split braiding particularly well-suited for the art of basketry, in making three-dimensional sculpture. This guide to one artistís creative process shows how a ply-split braided basket is shaped, based on the rate and location of adding and removing cords. Chapters include creating fenestrations, substituting cords, combining baskets, crossing planes, and harnessing the tension between right triangles when the hypotenuse of one aligns with the leg of another. See how these techniques are rendered in a gallery of beautiful finished work.

Size: 9 1/8? x 8 1/8? | 176 color images | Binding: soft cover | Schiffer Publishing, Ltd, Atglen, Pennsylvania
