Willow Sculpture Specialist
I create contemporary showpiece Willow Animal Sculptures which are both life-size and realistic. Each piece is woven by hand and completely unique.
The willow sculptures have evolved from the traditional basket weaving techniques I use to produce mummer’s masks. This process begins by personally growing over 40 different varieties of willow to enable me to choose from a large palette of colours and textures.
I carefully select each rod and use a dense, random weave to create form with detail, giving a feeling of movement and injecting a hint of expression. My sculptural work is innovative in that unlike basketry there is no pattern or formula to follow.
