Beaded Brittany Blue

135.00

Claire Kinsella uses locally foraged willow along with her own grown crops to create her utterly wonderful baskets. Traditional in every way yet there seems to prevail a modern look to her work. Curved edges meet straight lines, the rustic material is weaved into contemporary forms. Claire has a skilled that comes naturally to her, from the basketry process itself right through to her keen eye for spotting hedgerow gems to incorporate into each piece. 

This Polish Basket combines Brittany Blue willow from Somerset, with carved beads and a sculptural hazel handle. The colouring of this basket is stunning, with the green/blue of the Brittany willow working perfectly against the rich brown of Claire's local willow. It is another experimental basket from Claire where she has incorporated an unusual feature, this time beads, to decorate the piece and add a different texture to the surface. 

Tall and sturdy. Could be used everyday while out and about or at home as a kindling basket.
