Oldbridge Willow Basket

135.00

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 skill 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 Oldbridge Basket is one of Claires most playful pieces. We love the extended willow, left purely because it looked so good. The dark willow is Salix Nigricans which has the most beautiful dark colouring, contrasted wonderfully by the lighter beads. The mix of shapes, textures and tones on this basket makes it one of our favourites.

What is lacks in practicality, it gains in its playful nature.
