Joe Hogan

Artistic and tradtional baskets

Joe Hogan has been making baskets at Loch na Fooey since 1978 and in that time has earned a reputation for making strong, durable baskets of the highest quality.

The colours in these award winning baskets are those of the natural willows which are grown at Loch na Fooey. Joe also makes indigenous Irish baskets such as the creel.

Joe has written a book on basketmaking to record the techniques used in making Irish traditional baskets, a task that became more urgent as indigenous baskets such as creels and lobster pots began to go out of use.

It became apparent that some history of the baskets and their uses would have to be included, because to understand objects requires some knowledge of, and respect for, the people who made and used them.

Joe's baskets are all made to order. If you are interested in ordering please contact Joe for availability.
