Willow and Wire Sculptor Victoria Westaway hails from South Somerset; home to the small willow farmers who have supplied the basket weaving industry for generations. Victoria began her creative journey as a theatre designer and maker, using willow as the framework for carnivalesque costumes. Victoria also works in wire allowing her to create pieces that encapsulate her love of texture and mass. Her work represents elements of the natural world. The materials she uses offer flexibility to bring her sketches to life, creating forms that sit harmoniously in their environment.
Victoria has worked with garden designers, private collectors, corporations and architects. Working in her studio; a converted St John Ambulance HQ in the heart of Devon, her bespoke willow and wire sculpture offer a perennial beauty which reflect the ebb and flow of the horticultural year.
