Justine Burgess at West Wales Willows

The Mill, Gwernogle, Carmarthen, Carms, SA32 7SA Biography

“All my life, I’ve had a compulsion to create; it brings me great joy and offers a release from the pressures of life.  Willow, grown on my smallholding, affords me a versatile, sustainable material to weave both form and function.  I relish drawing on my experience of traditional and modern weaves, combining them with the diverse colours of willow and crafting my own designs.

I want my creations to evoke a sense of our traditions and heritage, while also bringing beauty and relevance into our modern day lives.  I draw inspiration from the textures and colours of the Welsh landscape.”
