Sarah Paramor

Applying heritage processes to unexpected materials, basketmaker Sarah Paramor creates playful contemporary pieces for exhibition and for the catwalk.

Her award-winning work takes natural and man-made materials out of their everyday context and encourages us to see them afresh: the beauty of an Ordnance Survey map, the glinty, unbridled life of corsetry boning, the tweedy qualities of humble hairmoss... Sarah Paramor lives and works in Applecross on the west coast of Scotland.
