First new Devon stave basket

Devon stave basketI’m very pleased to show you this photo of my first Devon stave baskets made as part of the HCA/Marsh Endangered Crafts award.
This is a #2 size basket which I started making with Mark Snellgrove in Devon and have been working on since. I also made a set of bending formers for the #2 and #4 baskets so I can start to make my own handles and rims from local materials.
There are a lot of hours in this basket, far more than would ever be commercially viable but they are all part of the learning process and it’s thanks to this award that I am able to dedicate the time to these wonderful baskets. I’ll be posting more as I continue to learn and start to produce my own baskets from scratch.
