Maker's statement

Flexible forms excite me tremendously. I don't think in terms of baskets or containers but in structure. On the Brink is about balance. Ribs and stakes help the flexibility of the structure, without them it would move and tip over in a change of atmosphere. In mainstream of work at the time, but the use of the flat band cane was a development. In mainstream of work at the time, but the use of flat band cane was a development.
