My next attempt at making a basket with spirals worked out well, but not quite the way I had visualised. You can see the spirals much better when you click on the images. In this instance I have formed spirals on the upper half of the inside of the basket. These were intended to be spirals on the outside going in an anti-clockwise direction. However, the result is quite pleasing.
The outside spirals on the lower half match those on the inside for the upper half.
My next spiral basket will be another attempt at spirals that reverse direction, not reverse surface!
