Contemporary Baskets

inspired by natural forms such as pebbles and boulders

These baskets are inspired by natural forms such as pebbles and boulders and man-made forms especially large scale ceramic vases. I have also been in awe of the work of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth since I studied at Bretton Hall and had access to The Yorkshire Sculpture Park . When weaving these baskets I feel as though I am building sculptural forms. I become lost in repetition of the weave and enjoy the fluidity of the willow. Usually each basket informs the next one.

If you would like to commission a contemporary basket contact Sue to discuss your order.
