Wicker and Sauvage Oak Basket by Thomas Louineau
Walter Benjamin defined the aura of natural and artistic objects as "a singular weft of time and space: the unique appearance of a distance, however close it may be". The works of Thomas Louineau (Cantal, France) are imbued with this aura. In this basket, an oak handle and raw wicker intertwine to form a sphere, a small world, seemingly anarchic but skilfully intertwined. Thomas cultivates his wicker (salix triandra, grisette) organically. Often he collects wood and other elements in his walks in the forest which he later incorporates into his creations.
