Is there a specific technique that you use mostly?
I like to explore the technique called "zarzo" – the material is first installed, before being interlaced. I like to make people discover it during my workshops, it gives a real connection to the physicality of weaving: the pleasure of weaving.
What do you enjoy most about basketry?
To observe the transformation of wicker. This craft involves a real evolution of the material. Harvesting, soaking, drying – the wicker goes through many stages before it can be worked and shaped. I appreciate this natural and sustainable process. It is truly the craft of slowness.
Does this sustainable process help to promote the craft?
Yes, it is a craft in the spirit of the times due to its sustainability. It generates almost no energy loss, no electricity is needed. For some years now, there has been a new generation of basket weavers who are reviving the craft through modern creations, valuing local materials.
Is your work always inspired by your environment?
Yes. Nature – and the environment around me – is an infinite source of inspiration in the forms, volumes and textures. I am particularly interested in movement, the way in which matter moves and gets mixed. I like to understand how it is all working.
