Olive green and brown ‘tick-tock’ weave basket with hazel handle.


This curvaceous basket has a highly textured weave, woven with multiple strands of coloured willows to create a painterly surface. The tick-tock technique was used in rush basketry and when woven using willow gives the effect of fluidity and movement across the sides of the basket.

The willow is grown organically here in King’s Cliffe and the curved hazel handle is grown and harvested in a local hazel coppice by Carolyn Church and Hugh Ross.

Originally designed as a non-functional basket, some customers who buy these baskets do find a use for them.

Dimensions:  H20cm x W36cm
