The kiwi plants at home needed support against a wall. I drew and manufactured en trellis, strictly geometric and irregular. Kiwi plants grow fast and after a few months the pattern was completely covered. In the autumns when the leaves fall the trellis becomes visible again and I thought it would be interesting to see that pattern as a relief on a surface.
Working with Cross has supplied me that possibility. The pot sides arches and closes in upwards, to give it stability and to clearly show the pattern. I associate with streets in some old city, others see branches, roots or a woven basket.
