Jenny Crisp has been a professional basket maker and willow grower for over 30 years. She grows the willow to make her baskets that she then sells directly to the public. 'I make functional items for use in the home and the garden. My involvement with the complete process, from the very first planting to the final stages of making, has given me an awareness and understanding of the link between making a functional object from an indigenous material. I try in my approach to be both forward looking and innovative, whilst at the same time retaining a respect for the sound and established traditions of my craft.' - Jenny Crisp
