Smooth grapevines give this stable basket added strength and a pleasantly delicate texture.

I began working with grapevines as part of my basketry R&D, experimenting with them and examining methods of including them in baskets. Grapevines are special because of their motion and curved shape. That is why I fell in love with them and decided to use them along with the more conventional straight branches. Each type of branch has its own qualities and the resulting baskets differ from one another. Every vine has its own message and form, allowing for infinite combinations, each creating a new shape that is always a surprise. Weaving with grapevines never fails to leave me astounded and entertained.

Windows offer us the opportunity to glance at another place, a place in which we are not situated at present. One can look outside from the windows of a house or catch a glimpse of the interior from outside. Glancing is like tasting life that is not yet your own. It bears curiosity and confusion. We are familiar with curiosity, but when we glance at something, we can lose ourselves to whatever we see. It would be dangerous to remain with this view, unable to return to ourselves.

 Grapevines “distort” the basket, introducing constant movement and dynamics, as though it were waiting for the next wave to break.
