Jessie Carr –  Cornish Willow Coffins

I have always been inspired by nature, Botanical Illustration and Baskerty being my two core skills.

I have been developing my basketry skills for the past 10 years and selling my work through craft fairs and Galleries as well as private commissions.

At first I was not sure how it would feel to make a coffin but I found it to be an honour and a privilege. Having had losses myself I can relate to the grieving process and understand how important the coffin is as the centrepiece and final resting place of the beloved.

Each coffin I make is unique and woven to a very high standard with close attention to detail. Working directly with clients allows me to add their personal input which I feel makes a difference to the finished piece.
