Pragnell worked in willow, blackthorn, bark and other natural materials, she gathered in Scotland where she lived and worked until 2006. Her large vessels were reminiscent of Scots fishing creels while more recent ones embodied smeared red clay. Another body of her work featured architectural living sculpture in willow. The Maker Profile series include artist interviews, studio visits and footage of the artists at work.
