Dicky Band Basket

110.00

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 with wild Kingston willow. Another of Claire's experimental baskets with an unusual feature, the long hazel handle is foraged from Claire's village, a sculptural addition that we love. It's a real pleasure to watch Claire take her baskets in new directions, unusual and utterly beautiful.

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