Woven Willow Woman


Back in April last year I posted some pictures of the woven willow giant at the Woodland Trust Reserve at Low Burnhall Farm, near Durham city. Now he's got company, in the form of this woven willow woman sited at the other end of the reserve. She's feeding woven willow chickens and even has eggs in the basket she carries over her arm. Wonderful!

  2. It's lovely Phil. In the last garden show here a landscape design is guarded by a beautiful lady with tillandsias all over herself, hair is T usnoiodes, and the skirt planted with lots of different flowering Tillandsias too!

    Happy New Year!

  3. Isn't it just, John. Beautifully made so should last for a few years. She overlooks a bend in the river Wear and it's a pleasant surprise to come around the footpath and find her feeding her chickens..

  5. I really like the sense of movement in the sculpture, Ellen. The swirl of twigs at the bottom of her dress makes it seem as though it's blowing in the wind...

  6. That must be a beautiful sight Andrea. This sculpture will be surrounded by flowers when summer comes and the hedges and wild flowers come into bloom. Very best wishes for 2013! Kind regards, Phil..

  8. Me too, toffeeapple. I think the artist got the pose exactly right, which must require incredible skill with such awkward materials...
