This tightly coiled saucepan basket by Doreen Nabulwad uses bands of dyed and undyed pandanus. This work is not only about technical perfection of form but about an eloquent sense of colour. In this piece the artist has combined green, brown and plain pandanus to produce a striking pattern.

Doreen Nabulwad's baskets are tightly coiled with an even surface, mostly in bowl and saucepan forms. She works with a smaller palette of dyed colours and her work was included in the 2003 exhibition 'Woven Form: Contemporary Basket Making in Australia' at Object Gallery in Sydney.
