My name is Dienke Dekker and I am a 4th year student at the Design Academy Eindhoven in Holland.
I think that different properties of materials offer a great opportunity to express ambience, tactility and feel of objects. In my work I love to experiment with these properties and to create objects with a strong emphasis on craftsmanship and detail.
The basket weaving craft has been the inspiration for this project about imitation and reinterpretation of crafts.
From imitation of bamboo structure, the step was made to silkscreen printing on silk and other textiles with custom paint stamps, resulting in a series of archetypical objects.
