I'm not usually a type of person who enjoys wicker. For me, it conjures up thoughts of bad Easter baskets and the imprints left on your thighs after sitting it your grandmother's lawn chairs. But Lise Bech's baskets have me reconsidering my previous opinion. She lives and works in the Southern Uplands of Scotland, where she grows a wide range of willows that she uses to create these very modern baskets.
