The combination of knitted textiles used with willow is a new concept and the final vessels are visually successful. These multi functional designs have great potential for expansion into a range of product lines including; lighting, furniture, blinds and room dividers, storage vessels and outdoor decorative pieces, etc. I would also look at creating “special” one-off commission pieces.

GalGael build and sail wooden boats in celebration of Scotland's heritage - providing a focal point, around which a whole number of community benefits can unfurl. Engaged in this way, a wide array of pieces have been created, across a broad spectrum of indigenous crafts; from boatbuilding to furniture making, timber framing to blacksmithing, basketweaving to leather carving and granite carving. At times traditional, at others contemporary, they are united by a common theme of integrity of the natural materials used. Indigenous motifs and local history also feature regularly in GalGael’s work.
