Ling Heather Platter by Annemarie O'Sullivan was inspired by Annemarie’s time spent on a residency on the Orkney Islands, organised by The New Craftsmen. Heather had traditionally been used in Orkney to make rope and baskets, and known as a reliable material for thatching roofs; however the material hadn't been used for weaving on Orkney for a hundred years.
Dimensions: Height: 15cm, Length: 90cm, Width: 90cm
Care Instructions: Clean with dry dusting cloth only
Annemarie selected each piece of heather for the platter by hand, finding long gnarled stems for the structure and thin, fine shoots for the weave; all secured in place using fine string.
Based in East Sussex, Annemarie O'Sullivan makes contemporary baskets using ancient British basket-making techniques. Annemarie grows around twenty varieties of willow, which she harvests by hand on a half-acre plot near her home. Working from a wooden studio in her garden, Annemarie creates both small-scale domestic objects and larger woven sculptures. Her baskets have been featured in The New York Times, The Irish Times, House and Garden and Country Living.
