Bamboo, banana, coconut leaves, from the Caribbean’s to Madagascar to Indonesia; the weaving of these leaves is a true art of basketry. This ancestral know-how requiring exceptionally fresh leaves and excellent dexterity, is used daily to create baskets, hats, fences and decorations.
The creative atelier of Daum explores this custom by adapting it to the modelling technique. The strips of earth were braided then reshaped into vases and bowls. Leaves of different varieties intersect, merge and remain rigid, still from their freshness, are transformed into baskets, where cut flowers or harvested fruits are collected in. The vanilla flowers recall the exoticism of the islands where weaving is still widely practiced. These delicate flowers decorate and perfect these works of patience and beauty.
