Willow Bark Sieve I (Small)
Willow Bark Sieve I is a decorative piece by Devon-based basketmaker Hilary Burns. It is made from cleft willow, cherry bark and Japanese urushi lacquer.
Handwoven from locally grown basket willow from Hilary's own harvest, this sieve is a reference to those used in many cultures for grading and cleaning grains and dried beans. The base is formed from cleft willow, while the sides of this sieve are built up using cherry bark, which is finished in urushi lacquer.
