Telephone Wire Platter - Claret
Our range of telephone wire vessels are hand crafted in South Africa by a co-operative of skilled weavers. Telephone wire is tightly woven to form bowls of varying sizes in a range of considered colours. The weaving project is a fair-trade initiative that focuses on mentoring local artisans — workshops that teach unemployed women and men how to weave leads into intensive skill development, training and on-going employment. This craft is difficult to master with only a handful of particular weavers who can make the larger cone bowls.
Pan After worked closely with the project to develop a range of contemporary pieces, both functional and sculptural.
100% telephone wire, can be gently hand-washed.
Telephone Wire Platter measures 40cm round x 10cm high.
