I am David Grushko, a basketry artist who lives in Ofra, Israel (near Jerusalem). I was born in Paris and raised in the spirit of French æsthetics. At the age of 18, I began studying electronics, but I soon switched to homeopathy, that I still practice in parallel to my art career. I learned basketry techniques from Hertzel Auster, one of Israel’s foremost basket weavers.
I believe that art is a superior tool for connecting the spiritual and material worlds and for revealing my innermost self. As an artist, I feel that the various facets that comprise my sense of self are displayed and expressed in my works.Read More
In deepest thought I wove ideas we knew
Refreshing hearts and making souls glad, too.
Amid the branches notions will break through
Connecting walls in many dreams, it’s true.

I make functional baskets from my workshop in a village north of Jerusalem. I never use prefabricated materials. I gather the Palm fronds, treat them, let them set and then weave a beautiful piece for the perfect home.
The Wall Art is made from the finest natural materials. The Palm tree branches grow in Israel at the Jordan Valley. I collect them in the autumn, I treat the fronds and keep them dry and warm for 6 months before I start to weave the branches into a functional piece of art.
Spaces in motion, like waves on the sea
Extending themselves inexorably.
A dream is growing in time and in space
A seed is sprouting, assuming its place.
