Willow Harvest Basket
Willow Harvest Basket by Annemarie O'Sullivan, made from chestnut harvested in East Sussex and from Somerset willow. The little sister to the Kindling Basket, this functional carrier is suitable for use as a shopper or as a decorative vessel.
Historical examples of agricultural baskets fascinate Annemarie and it is from these pieces that she draws her inspiration. The shape and the materials present a constant challenge, requiring strong hands to control the interplay between the willow and the form. This piece was made using the ranging technique, with double twine willow and an integrated hazel handle. Originally this basket would have been widely used around the farm for the collection of food.
