Ellen Mulcrone, willow artist, wicker sculpture, willow art, basketry, weaving
Ellen Mulcrone, creator of Pearpod, graduate of 'Design and Craft' at Brighton University. 'My pod-making stems from a desire to celebrate our introverted nature, that which is often excluded from accepted and respected behaviour within our society.
Weaving creates space, allowing my thoughts to wander and my hands and body to dance as I sculpt. I am drawn to the use of willow due to it's flexibility, richness of colour, and abundant qualities. However I also work with a variety of other materials, with a particular interest in re-fabricating waste materials.'
