in the undergrowth

I combined ceramic and willow in this piece, that emerges from the woodland floor.

The ceramic forms a frill around the mouth of the flower-like growth, whilst brown willow (willow with its bark still intact) weaves around and around to form an open-work throat, rising up from the ground.

flying birds basket

Here is a basket I made depicting a bird taking flight. The Basket is made using buff willow, but has an added strip of woven hessian stabilised with paper pulp. I have collaged and stitched onto this surface using tissue paper and felt.
