Willow figures built on to welded steel armature that is concreted into the ground. The steel armature provides a rigid, permanent internal structure able to withstand general wear and tear and the weather. Live willow can be used which will root and grow during the summer months. This new growth can be woven back into the sculpture. Live willow sculptures are best carried out during the harvesting season from November to March each year. At other times dried willow can be used as in the Middlewich Primary School horse. This is an ideal, outdoor project for schools and community groups.

These lanterns were commissioned as part of Chester Performs Up The Wall event 2008 and are constructed from bamboo and willow with a covering of tissue and latex rubber glue. The designs are based on a number of natural objects, insect wings, flowers, seed pods and cocoons and were built to fit over existing street lighting around the venue.
