Tania LaCaria - Says Who?

You can’t put that there. You can’t do it that way. You can’t build it like this. That isn’t supposed to happen that way. You aren’t doing it right. It’s too big. You’re too small. It’s too weird. It’s too slow. She did it better. He hates it. She says it’s ugly. He stopped watching. 

It’s actually incredible. It’s better than that. It’s worth more. She’s impressed. He loves it. It’s just perfect as it is. It’s not supposed to be pretty. He gets it. She doesn’t care. 


The Hold collection is inspired by the concept of baskets - vessels that were designed to hold and carry items only of a certain size…not everything was meant to be carried. Grains of sand, water, soil, beads, pebbles, leaves, berries… still slip through the cracks. The baskets are meant to hold onto what truly matters, and release whatever doesn’t. The cracks are there to let whatever shouldn’t be contained slip away. The history of basket making has been lost - the basket couldn’t even hold onto its own story.  This collection explores the paradox that exists in the moments of time when letting go is essential in order to be able to carry on with what matters. Not everything or everyone was meant to be kept.
