‘Cistella’ is the word in valencian language meaning ‘basket’, a container woven mainly with wicker, reed or straw. This collection of lamps are inspired by this traditional Valencian object, taking its shape and applying it to another type of object.
To make them, just like the wicker baskets, stoneware strips are woven and create a mesh with which to shape the different pieces. Thus, the resulting form is not a mere applied texture, but is the result of the manufacturing process, visible both inside and outside the pieces.
Pendant and table lamps in glazed stoneware. Hand woven clay technique.
