Working With Willow

Natural geometry | Hedy Hempe

Since 2003 I am working with willow. In my presentation for Qua Art Qua Science at De Museumfabriek in Enschede on 7th of September I will share my experiences and development in the making of willow objects. As my shapes become more geometric I need to expand my technical skills. It also requires more knowledge of the material itself, how does it react in different circumstances. Developing knowledge and improving skills takes time and effort. I learned a lot by just doing but as you get further in the process you need to get into details. That is inspiring and exciting!
