Materials: wicker and clay
Workbench is the result of a collaboration between two traditional artisan realities as wicker and clay. Through an experimental research approach, the project reinterprets feelings and technical possibilities of both materials combined together, in order to identify new languages and processes. The project has been developed working in close contact with local craftsmen related to wicker and clay. Wood flexibility and ceramic fragility, the weaving and the dough, the drying cycle and the baking process, all together on the same table, where materials and methods complement one another and the final result is a contamination between two different worlds.
