I have been making baskets since 1997. In the last 10 years my focus has been on large scale structures - giant baskets that you can climb inside. Having studied engineering, I most enjoy making functional objects - even if that function is play.
In moving to making smaller baskets, I have been trying to bring with me some of the shapes that have evolved in my large scale work. I am drawn to curved shapes inspired by plant forms. Onions are a particular favourite.
Recently I have been experimenting with incorporating green oak and hazel into my baskets. I like the quality of sturdiness which these materials bring.
