Emma Bruschi infuses the timeless elegance of ancient harvest rituals into her captivating rye sculptures. ⁤⁤Working with a traditional long-handled scythe on her family’s farm in Haute-Savoie, Bruschi harvests straw, skillfully weaving and knotting it into stunning jewelry and charming “harvest bouquets.” ⁤⁤These small yet enchanting works celebrate the inherent allure of the crop, accentuating its textures and shapes. ⁤⁤The result is a harmonious blend of rustic charm and agricultural ritual, evoking symbols of fertility and timeless growth from days of yore. ⁤

⁤To streamline the intricate process of separating a single piece of straw, Bruschi collaborated with the PEF workshop in Pantin to create a special tool that efficiently zips up the center of the shoot. ⁤⁤In an interview, Emma emphasizes the importance of transmitting ancient techniques, ensuring they endure in the modern world. ⁤⁤She explains, “Straw-working tools are sometimes scarce or of poor quality. ⁤⁤So it seemed logical to me to reproduce these ancient tools with today’s means.” ⁤
