Beaded Brittany Blue

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 Brittany Blue willow from Somerset, with carved beads and a rugged silver birch handle. The cool, almost blue, colouring of this basket is stunning. It is another of Claire's experimental baskets where she has incorporated an unusual feature, this time carved beads, to decorate the piece and add a different texture to the surface. 

 

Truly one of the finest one-offs we've received from Claire.
