Crossing Parallels – Basket #180811
This unique piece was made at the encounter of two techniques: rotary 3D printing and traditional coiling.
“Crossing Parallels” explores the interaction between the basketry technique of hand coiling and 3D-printing. Both techniques build objects through the same construction principle, laying one filament—whether natural fibre or melted plastic—on top of another. By making objects at the crossroads between handicraft and digital craft, Amandine David aims to contribute to a more nuanced definition of craft as collaborative practice.
This piece benefited from the contribution and technical mastery of basket weaver Esmé Hofman and 3D-printing artisan Joris van Tubergen.
