09 Dec 2009- New Baskets
Pictured here are some baskets i have been working on recently.
In the picture you will see a variety of curved willow corner baskets that i have been developing, A laundry basket with lid, a Potato sciob, a square stripped willow sewing basket and a basket for storing peat briquettes.
Christmas is always a busy time for me.
08 Dec 2009- Peat Briquette basket
A new design I've been working on is for a basket for holding a bale of standard Bord na Mona Peat Briquettes.
The basket is done in a few different varieties of willow and has a solid wooden base for durability and paracticality to cut down on dust.
06 Dec 2009- Nativity Crib
A new design for a nativity crib i have been commissioned to do this year.
The crib has a solid timber base and is thathed in straw.
I have also lined the crib with some fresh straw and green leaves to add some festive colour.
I'm quite happy with how it has worked out
09 Nov 2009- Baby Crib in stripped willow
This is a childs crib I have made by commission for a customer.
It is done in stripped willow with a solid base.
08 Sep 2009- Willow gazebo
I planted a willow gazebo in my garden last year, and only this summer got around to finishing it off with some nice synthetic grass.
It's woven with long willow bolts to form a canopy over a 10 foot diameter and while it was a bit slow to sprout initially it really took off this year. Its a great peaceful space for relaxing in on a summers evening.
28 Feb 2009- A Late Harvest
I was a bit late getting the last of my willows cut this year, due to having some back problems over the winter. I would usually have all my willow harvested before christmas to avoid the willows sprouting catkins at the onset of spring.
Although the catkins are quite attractive. Perhaps I may try and experiment incorporating some of them into some of my baskets as a feature.
My new website is finally up and running.
