MAGGIE SMITH

Maggie works from her studio at home in Northampton. She gathers materials from sites in the surrounding countryside and grows many of the materials she uses in her garden, allotment and at her Willow bed in Essex.

Using a wide range of materials, mainly natural and sustainable, and an ever-widening range of traditional basketry and craft techniques she creates her contempory range of wall, sculptural pieces and vessels for interiors as well as functional baskets.

While her inspiration comes from both the natural and man-made world it is a compulsion to explore and experiment that truly drives her practice and feeds her creativity.

Her recent work has focused on Willow and through this emphasis on exploration she has discovered new ways to use willow and utilise every part of the material, from leaves to roots, in her work.
