About craft and material

We often try to push the boundaries of what can be done and experiment a fair bit with used materials.

Plaiting is a traditional craft, nearly forgotten nowadays. The concept of the wicker bowl drew inspiration from old traditions of the Kashubian people – where wicker is used to protect homes situated near lake shores from water and moisture.

Plaited baskets are used as unique open moulds for our glass bowls. Wicker deformed in the process leaves its unique imprint on their surface. The result is a genuinely one-of-a-kind handmade glass vessel. The hot glass poured into the wicker basket burns it and each wicker mould plaited by a craftsman is consequently destroyed during the production process, while keeping the craft alive.
