Esmé Hofman


Basketmaker Esmé Hofman likes to push the boundaries of her craft. Her colourful works use natural stems, leaves and bark as well as wire, plastics, vellum and paper, while her techniques include coiling, plaiting, and stake and strand. She also creates woven furniture, and specialises in fine skein work. “As a modern craftswoman, I am prepared to look beyond the borders of this traditional craft. This gives me freedom to explore creative possibilities and generates other ways of making,” she says. Nowadays the designer, who trained in the town known as Germany’s basketmaking capital, works with and for designers, artists, museums and private costumers.
