Ancient harvest rituals: symbolist rye sculptures by Emma Bruschi

Emma Bruschi is a French artist and designer who creates sculptures and jewelry from rye straw, a material that has been used for centuries in various cultures and traditions. Bruschi harvests the rye on her family farm in Haute-Savoie, using a traditional scythe and a custom-made tool that splits the straw into thinner strands. She then weaves, knots, and twists the straw into intricate shapes and forms, inspired by the natural beauty and symbolism of the crop.

Bruschi calls her creations “harvest bouquets”, as they evoke the ancient rituals of offering and gratitude for the bounty of the earth. Bruschi’s work is a tribute to the humble elegance and craftsmanship of rye straw, as well as a reflection on the connection between humans and nature.
