Meadow Grass Basket I
Meadow Grass Basket I by Pip Rice is part of the ‘Plant Explorations’ collection, facilitated by The New Craftsmen. Earlier this year, The New Craftsmen invited a select group of craftspeople to the Economic Botany Collections at Kew Gardens to examine and creatively respond to a myriad of objects and their narratives. Pip found her specific inspiration in a large palm cone, carefully wrapped and tied in string to preserve it on its journey from Australia 140 years ago. Woven with grasses, roots and leaves, her work feels as though it has been found in a hedgerow or gathered from the forest floor, before being placed on a mantlepiece to be treasured.
