Intertwining textile weaving techniques such as crochet and macramé into her basketry, Galician artisan Idoia Cuesta is inspired by the surrounding landscape, local traditions and the vernacular of Irish, Finnish, and Danish basketry, as well as traditional Asian handweaving and braiding. From her studio, which sits on the edge of a biosphere reserve near Lugo, she researches, experiments, and collaborates, leading to creative new expressions of her craft.
Cuesta relishes working with organic textiles and isn´t afraid to adopt new techniques, something which is best exemplified by her “chaos technique”, a spontaneous and liberating process that means no finished piece is the same as the next. Some of the baskets and vessels she has produced for the Salone collection have been realized in this way, drawing inspiration from Japanese Ikebana artist Jiro Yonewaza who similarly seeks order out of disorder.
