Hilary Burns

Hilary Burns is a Devon based basketmaker who grows, harvests, soaks and bends her own willow to create functional pieces and decorative baskets. Weaving has been a constant in her life, originally she trained as a fabric weaver before taking up the craft of basketry thirty years ago. In 1985, she planted several willow beds to grow her own sustainable materials – hazel, oak and ash. Her work is based on traditional techniques applied in a contemporary way to achieve a robust and natural look.

Maker's Quote

Basketry is a slow craft; growing the materials, cutting, grading, drying, soaking gives control but adds to the making time. I study traditional techniques and find them endlessly intriguing, refined to perfectly suit the available material and function. I try to find my own way to use them to create form and texture.
