Vases made from osiers refer to the beginnings of ceramics production when osiers served as a basis for the earthen layer. As for clay, the vase contains a bowl, which enables the osiers to live and shine green. The disappearing art of basketry is revived in the Živá váza by Michaela Tomišková together with osiers. “Osiers grow, gain strength, and renew. It is a material from which utility objects can be woven. One can simply watch it change, flourish, lack something – care,” explains Tomišková.
