Breck Heather Light
Breck Heather Light by Annemarie O'Sullivan was inspired by Annemarie's time spent in residency on the Orkney Islands, organised by The New Craftsmen. "Breck" is derived from the old Orcadian word to describe shallow clay ground which stunted heather grows from. Heather has traditionally been used in Orkney to make rope and baskets, and is known as a reliable material for thatching roofs.
International wiring and bespoke variations are available, please enquire for further details.

Heather is a versatile material and this work is a discovery of what it can do and wants to do. It has traditionally been used in Orkney to make rope and baskets, and is known as a reliable material for thatching roofs. After walking the land and seeking out long stems of characterful heather, it is bundled together to be gently seasoned before being woven on to the light frame.
