The Maker Joe Hogan Basket Maker - Republic of Ireland

Joe Hogan is a master basket-maker based in Loch Na Fooey, a glacial lake situated in the Republic of Ireland. Joe uses local willow, as well as local larch, catkins and bog wood to construct woven sculptures and baskets, showcasing his deep understanding of material and place. Moving to Loch Na Fooey in 1978, Joe trained with numerous Irish basket makers, learning techniques rarely seen in the modern day. Joe Hogan’s work is internationally recognised, and has been shortlisted for the Loewe Craft Prize in 2018.
