Willow Exploration 37
Willow Exploration 37 forms part of a series of innovative work which utilises the willow Maggie Smith grows and harvests herself. With each piece created, Maggie learns something new about what the material can do – and how it can be used. This particular decorative object was inspired by the colour of bark used to form a single ring at the top of the piece. The resulting container employs several different craft techniques to knit and cobble willow shaves with willow bark. This is a one-off piece, created exclusively for The New Craftsmen.
