Busy in the workshop again today on another commission for someone’s garden. They wanted an asymmetric, rope-coil pod-like form. Really enjoying making these, although its very physical using all that material… I need a massage now!
This week I’ve really enjoyed working on some commissions and getting into the flow with the ‘rope coil’ technique, playing with asymmetry and more sculptural forms. I love the juxtaposition of the smooth reddish brown of the buff willow against the variation in texture and colour that the bark of the ‘brown’ willow (which is often shades of olive green to deep purples) gives.
