Mixed-media Basket

Mixed-media basket

This basket was made for a small Cheshire Artists Network exhibition on a narrow boat in Northwich. I thought using corks was appropriate for a floating art gallery!

The basket is finished with a coiled willow border.

Diameter 37cm

Caroline Gregson
Willow Sculpture Artist

I have loved and been inspired by the natural world since I was a child and the ability to work as a Willow Artist and make willow sculptures representing the essence of animals, birds and other living forms brings me great pleasure. I love to represent movement and vitality in my work. My willow sculptures appear to have just paused in their setting before they are ready to move on. One of the nicest things anyone has said about my animal sculptures is that you can always see where they are looking!
