Braided Dicky Meadows

95.00

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 Dicky Meadows willow from Somerset, with braided rush bands and a wild Kingston willow centre. The handle is stripped willow which feels soft on the hand and looks gorgeous. It is another of Claire's experimental baskets where she has incorporated an unusual feature, this time braided rush, to decorate the piece and add a different texture to the surface. 

A truly wonderful work of art that has enough strength to be used daily for many years to come.
