Sue's traditional and contemporary baskets are made from willow grown locally in Northamptonshire. The growing, harvesting, sorting, selecting and preparing of willow are inseparable elements to her craft and are practiced seasonally.

Sue Kirk’s passion for willow began in 1997 after meeting a local basket maker. Her husband began growing willow organically around the same time. The growing, harvesting, sorting, selecting and preparing of willow are inseparable elements to her craft and are practiced seasonally. Dicky Meadows and Brittany Blue willows are grown organically in Kings Cliffe in Northamptonshire. The Hazel she uses for handles is grown locally by Hugh Ross and Carolyn Church in a ten-year rotation Coppice.
Her contemporary willow baskets are inspired by curvaceous weighty forms such as boulders and rock formations, the willow is woven to create a fluid surface texture.
