Hybrid Basketry


Credits: Amit Zoran

Contemporary 3D printing and traditional craft rarely meet in the same creation. They tend to live in different worlds. This work argues for merging these two distinct traditions. Hybrid basketry is a medium where 3D-printed structures are shaped to allow the growth and development of hand-woven patterns. While the 3D-printed plastic elements contribute the aesthetics of the digital curvatures and manifolds, the hand-woven reed, jute, and canvas fibers infuse the baskets with a unique organic appeal.
