Painter, Carver & Willow Weaver
© Nicki McLean 2015
The willow balls are of various sizes around 600mm across and larger. They look good suspended from branches or placed on the lawn or even in a nature garden. Various designs include random weave or patterned with a spiral willow outer layer. Also can be made from contorted willow which gives it a naturalistic feel. All treated with linseed oil and with repeat 6 monthly doses can last for 5 years or so, a graceful addition to the garden, always attract attention and comment. The birds love hanging on mine, wrens and dunnock search in the crevices for flies.
