Lampley Basket (Chinese Hazel)

138.00

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 is beautiful with its dancing Chinese Hazel Catkins dancing around the form. A lovely brown basket with autumnal orange highlights and deeper richer willows woven in places. The size of this piece is striking, it is tall with a wide base flowing up into a narrow top. The Catkins make this piece for us, they are just so good looking - bringing the natural outdoors in.

(W)35 x (H)44cm
