Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the nat­u­ral world Ca­tri­ona Pollard com­bines tra­di­tional bas­ket mak­ing and as­sem­blage tech­niques with for­aged plant ma­te­ri­als; vines, branches, leaves and seed­pods, and other earthly el­e­ments such as char­coal, clay and ash to cre­ate in­tri­cately wo­ven and con­structed fi­bre works, sculp­ture and bas­ketry. Pollard’s new imag­i­na­tions cel­e­brate the beauty and abun­dance of na­ture, highlighting the rich colours, tex­tures and forms that it pro­duces. Many of these works are made purely from or­ganic ma­te­ri­als with­out glues, dyes or syn­thetic threads.
