Wicker baskets

CORDULA KEHRER www.cordulakehrer.de

Project description:
Bow Bins are made by using old and discarded plastic buckets found in thrift shops or in waste dumps on the street. The plastic buckets are cut up in pieces, sampled in a new way and made whole again using wickerwork or other natural material. Each object is handmade by local German basketweavers and each one is unique, depending on the weaver’s technique and the style of the plastic bucket. Bringing together plastic readymades and traditional handicraft makes us think of how we could handle sustainable production in the future.
