Sculpture and Bespoke Design

Willow wolfhound sculptureThis area of the business is one in which we are able to most express our creativity, developing original artistic work, making non-functional basketry for exhibition and display and producing larger scale willow sculpture.

Elaine has won awards from The Crafts Council of Ireland National Crafts Competition and The Crafts Council of Ireland purchased for their permanent collection an artistic basketry piece.

In making original sculptural pieces we can take a step away from the wholly traditional and work as contemporary designer makers utilizing skills and exploring creativity.

A sculptural willow vesselAs designer makers we also accept commissions for sculptural, artistic and more unusual work. We can offer a bespoke service for our clients and have for example, designed and made a large (7ft) willow sculpture of an Irish wolfhound on an oak plinth for Antrim Castle Gardens and Clotworthy Arts Centre; a woven pike for the NIEA Quoile Countryside Centre, Downpatrick; a willow strawberry for a retail craft outlet; a willow centre piece decoration for a wedding, pieces for historical re-enactment and large scale projects for the film and television industries (Universal and HBO).

No matter how unusual a request you may have please don’t hesitate to contact us as we love the challenge of a unique commission.
