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.

Every encounter between two grapevines creates a junction, where different directions encounter one another, each with its own stream of contemplation, desires and aspirations. All enter the junction, allowing the people there to select an alternative path, choose a new desire or reveal a new observation of life.
When I enter the junction, I have three options: To return on the same path that brought me there, to remain at the junction without making any decisions or to choose a new path that will bring me to an unfamiliar location.
Grapevines “distort” the basket, introducing constant movement and dynamics, as though it were waiting for the next wave to break
