Basket illusions is the work of a wood turner, a woodburner and an artist applying design and colors. Basket illusions is a wood turned piece that attempts to resemble woven basketry commonly found in the Native American culture.
This artwork is done by Larry Cornwell. He is not a wood turner and he purchases the wood plate from a wood turner to start. He then woodburns and adds a design to the basket.
At this time 9 inch and 12 inch basket illusions are available. Designs available are pictured below.
