maggie smith: explorations in basketry

Maggie Smith grows her own willow and weaves it into experimental basket forms, often adding elements of bark and other natural materials. The UK based artist explores alternative techniques in her work, including knitting bark and stitching the knitted pieces to the baskets. The results are organic, rustic yet contemporary. Nice!
