Extra large asymmetric basket


This beautiful asymmetric border was originally designed by Polish basketmaker Stanislaw Dziubak. I love making these baskets, the border gives a contemporary feel to the basket and is woven with a variety of coloured willows to give a painterly effect to the surface. I have been enjoying making large scale pieces and this is the biggest one i have made to date , the extra side stakes increase the curve on the edge of the border giving a sense of movement.

This basket looks good sat next to the fire and gives a  contemporary feel to a room. The basket can used for kindling, or storage and is also perfect for knitting wools.

All willows are grown organically here in King’s Cliffe. The hazel forming the handle was grown in a coppice woodland nearby.
