About John Williamson
Devon based Devon stave basket maker. I have lived and worked in the Teign valley, Devon, all my life. The Devon stave basket is a design honed over generations. A beautiful and useful tool that will last for a very long time. These baskets are close to my heart and as a woodland owner/manager, I feel lucky to be able to see the whole process through from tree to basket. After several years of research I now make the full range of nine sizes. My baskets were recently exhibited in the Ruthin gallery at “Basketry. Rhythm, renewal and reinvention” BA Hons. 3D design(designer/maker) Much more can be found by clicking this link- https://linktr.ee/MrJohnthebasketmaker
I specialise in stave baskets of various sizes constructed traditionally in Devon from Ash, Elm and softwood staves. All baskets made to order. Occasionally available through my shop accessed via my linktree account. For commissions please contact me for sizes/prices.
