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.

The basket morphs into a rising spiral, offering contact with one idea at different times and on different levels. Each level reveals another aspect of life, embodying development and renewal, together with a new sensation revealed for the first time. The more we ascend the spiral, the deeper the levels of being that we encounter.

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