About

Baskets Manufactured by Alison Dickens Produced in exclusive for Side Gallery London, 2020 Lean “Buckled basket’ Dicky Meadows & Hilary’s grey Willow Measures: 40 cm x 20 cm x 30h cm 15.74 in x 7.97 in x 11.81 H in Concept: “In the landscape” is a series of sculptural forms which echo the high and low curves of spare open British landscapes: the Yorkshire Dales and Wolds, The Norfolk and Suffolk coasts, estuaries and tidal mudflats; as well as the forms and patterns made by water, wind and waves. The willow vessels are made using the rope-wale (or rope coil) weave, which involves adding a new rod at every stroke and weaving with a bundle of willow. The technique is slow and time-consuming and uses a lot of willow; but creates a sense of movement which evokes the forces and forms that guide Alison’s inspiration. Bio: Alison’s baskets take the form of organic sculptural vessels. Based in London her willow is bought from Somerset, her bark and other plant materials are harvested from hedgerows, gardens and roundabouts. Her commitment to basketmaking came after a career in urban reGeneration. Since then, Alison has taken many basketry courses and trained for two years on the City Lit Basketry Course, completing in 2017 with an exhibition at Craft Central, Clerkenwell.
