Large green and red asymmetric basket with double handle


I have been experimenting with the asymmetric pattern of this baskets border throughout lockdown. This scale of these baskets became really interesting to me and i experimented with adding more side stakes to give the diagonal line of the border a longer smoother edge. The colours of the willows added in this pattern also give a painterly effect which i love, a red stripe runs diagonally across the surface in two or three places. I have used Le Bleu willows, Green Dicks, Dark Dicks and Brittany Blue willows on this piece all grown organically by Kirk here in King’s Cliffe. The double handle is made from Dicky Meadows willow.
