The wickerwork designer Rosa Gies creates objects and products in contemporary aesthetics. Her works are characterized by clarity and naturalness and take on a simple uniqueness through the abstraction of traditional weaving techniques.
A recurring theme in Rosa Gies' work is the exploration of fine weaving. In this technique, which originated in Upper Franconia, each willow rod is hand-planed into fine splints in an elaborate process, which are then used to create filigree weaves.
