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 is a beautiful strong brown with a lovely light stripped handle. The colouring of this basket is stunning, with the rich brown of Claire's local willow softly complimented by a antler like branch handle. A basket for shopping, jobs round the home or ideally to sit sculpturally in a favourite spot.
A simple form made through a complex craft.
