Willow Oval Shopper

Annemarie O'Sullivan
£500
Willow Oval Shopper by Annemarie O'Sullivan, a carrier with leather handles made from willow harvested in East Sussex. This functional piece is suitable for regular use or as a decorative piece fixed to a wall.

Historical examples of agricultural baskets fascinate Annemarie, and it is from these pieces that she draws her inspiration. The shape and the materials present a constant challenge, requiring strong hands to control the interplay between the willow and the form. This piece is based on a traditional basket used for carrying fruit and vegetables, although the leather handles are a contemporary feature. Sitting comfortably on the arm, this is the perfect carrier to take shopping or into the garden.
