This little basket is inspired by the chunky stalks and comparatively tiny tops of cep mushrooms.

The mushroom cap can be removed like a lid and both parts can then also be used separately, if wished. It has been worked with raffia that I hand-dyed with willow leaf and fern fronds.

Since moving to the Orkney Islands, the natural world has become a big part of my life and an inspiration for my work. I am constantly looking for new ways to use the plants around me for crafts and to deepen the connection between making and nature.
