Eamon Tobin

Eamon Tobin makes his baskets in the south east of Ireland, in an area with a long history of basket making. He uses this grounding in tradition as inspiration for his work where he aspires to ‘Celebrate the existing’ in his traditional baskets. Eamon also sees the importance of creating ‘A New History’ for modern basketry. He creates his contemporary baskets with the mantra of ‘Old techniques, new path’. The willow for the baskets is grown onsite, which Eamon believes gives him more control and a better knowledge of the material. Eamon has won awards for his work most notably first place in the Basketry section of the prestigious Royal Dublin Society, National Craft Awards, Dublin.
