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.

This basket has a handle, like a giant cup for holding and serving. Hand and handle are close to the item, but are not the item itself. They provide a means of touching and knowing, but not of being. A cup without a handle can fulfill its function, but a handle without a cup is just a broken shard. Sometimes, our hands demand so much attention that we forget the key item and remain with handles only.

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