This coil basket, is made with raffia that I hand-dyed with willow bark from our land. In the late autumn, willow bark produces a rich chocolate brown dye, which makes a perfect contrast to the white, un-dyed raffia.

I have finished it with a petal border. I like to make baskets that echo natural form as well as being made with natural materials.

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.
