Willow Tiffin Carrier
Willow Tiffin Carrier by Maggie Smith 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. This piece is inspired by a tiffin carrier, with various sections made in a huge variety of techniques. Made using willow grown in her garden, Maggie showcases the versatility of the plant by incorporating every part, including the leaves, wood, bark and roots.
