The ancient era belonged to incredibly amazing arts and crafts. For instance, the art of basket weaving. This mesmerizing art was believed to be one of the widest spread art that people love all around the world. It involved creating a variety of things just by using natural materials. That sounds amazing, isn’t it? Of course, it does. That’s why a popular British sculptor known as Anna & the Willow is taking this art to next level with her hard work and talent.

“Working with a natural material opened up a new world and I consequently went on to learn the different techniques of basketry,” she says. “I enjoy using the traditional skills of basketry and adding my own flair to the process.”

You can see some of Anna’s amazing work on her Instagram account. But till then, you can just scroll down and treat your eyes with the life-size sculptures that she has made.

British sculptor Anna & the Willow creates incredible outdoor sculptures made from English-grown rods of willow.

Each large piece is first planned with hand-drawn sketches before being rendered from bespoke steel frames.

Anna then wraps them with layers of interwoven willow rods, revealing their awe-inspiring forms.

Placed among nature, they look as though they have grown from the forest floor.
