On the “About” page of her website, Brieditis describes her design philosophy:
Much of my work develops through hands-on experiments with the material itself, where old craft techniques meet contemporary expressions in rhythm, scale or composition.
I’m interested in modern materials as well as all materials that can be recycled, and this has always been an important source of inspiration to me. I have a deep and sincere love for colours, materials and all types of techniques. They seem to constantly offer me new challenges.
For the Broakulla, each panel is made up of an array of 3 by 5 hemispheres. Each panel measures 13-3/4” by 22-1/2”. When combined together, they make a very large art piece. The colors are much more indicative of a mid century piece than something contemporary by Ikea.
There was considerable interest in this particular auction on eBay, with 6 bidders placing 15 bids. The 6 panels sold for $355.00, $60 for each panel. Domestic shipping added $28. Occasional past auctions have these selling individually for $10-15 per panel plus shipping.
