  • Grow 38 varieties of willow on several small plots close to his home – grown without the use of pesticide ,herbicide or fungicide.
  • Baskets are environmentally clean and sustainably-produced to the highest standards of integrity.

“I have a passion for the handmade and homegrown, making everyday objects that are a joy to use. My work is traditional but continues to evolve.

I like to make robust, functional baskets that are tactile and hopefully bring great pleasure to those who choose to own them.
I produce a range of baskets and site specific sculptural work. ” P.B.
