Summary

This coiled basket by Louise Nganjmirra has been designed with four diamond designs with crossed coil division in vibrant dyed pandanus. Diamond designs require more calculations and clever use of beginnings and endings of lengths of pandanus than other designs such as block colours.

Louise Nganjmirra lives at Kudjekbinj, an outstation, and produces coiled baskets that contain highly geometric patterning, including step and diamond designs.
