Kip Basket by Annemarie O'Sullivan, a functional piece inspired by the craft heritage of the Orkney Islands. Forming part of a unique collection designed by Annemarie as a response to her residency on Orkney, the Kip basket was produced as a prototype by master basket maker Felicity Truscott. The whole contemporary collection was made using an endangered coiled straw technique, which will eventually be employed exclusively for The New Craftsmen by a new wave of Orkney makers.

Process

This basket was created by sewing a core of straw using fine chair cane. The core is 'sized' throughout the making using a piece of pipe with straw continuously added into the pipe to keep the core the same size.
