African Telephone Wire Bowl Multi Color Handcrafted South Africa
Handcrafted in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, Zulu bowls, pots and baskets were traditionally crafted of clay, Illala palm grass and other natural materials. With the advent of telephone wire, the Zulu people began using traditional weaving skills to make this telephone wire beautiful art.
This Multi Color wire bowl are used for salads, fruits, nuts and more recently home decor and jewelry storage. Tea lights are often used smaller bowls to create a lighting ambiance by bringing out the beautiful colors of the bowls.
The bowls can be hand washed with soap and water, which eventually enhances the colors.
In addition to the bowls and plates woven by hand, the telephone wire is used to cover bottles, weapons, cutlery, as well as making jewelry and any other artistic manner the Zulu people find, as they put art in every part of their life.
