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.

When I look at a basket from the side, it resembles a fish head peeking out of the water and opening its huge mouth, as if to swallow the outside world. The mouth remains open constantly, seeking to gain more and more bounty. It takes in everything and still has room for more. Most of the fish is concealed under water. Only the head breaks through to the other side and expresses its silent cry, unheard in the depths of its habitat.

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