Willow Rope Twist

75.00

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.

Claires Rope Twist Baskets have to be her most tactile. The undulating surface formed from the twisting willow is so satisfying. This is a perfect example of Claire's skill in creating pieces that work on a small scale. A beautiful addition to any home, it could be used to hold valuables or small amounts of fruit, however we'd just admire it as a sculptural form to be placed amongst a collection of cherish objects.

Wild willow from the lanes surrounding Claire's home.
