African Telephone Wire Bowl Zulu Basket Fruit Bowl White Green Turquoise Orange Swirl 7.75" D X 4" H

$ 39.00

African Telephone Wire Bowl Zulu Basket Fruit Bowl in White Green Turquoise Orange Swirl. Handcrafted in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.

Zulu bowls, pots and baskets were traditionally crafted of clay, Ilala palm grass and other natural materials. With the advent of telephone wire entering, the Zulu people began using traditional weaving skills to make this telephone wire beautiful art.

Telephone wire for these baskets is purchased from a local factory, and made especially for artistic work. 

This bowl is used for fruit, bread and more. They are perfect for inside or outside use. It can be hand-washed with soap and as you can see, the patina becomes better with time. They're also used to display, candy, soap, and many other utilitarian and artistic uses.

Great for outdoor summer serving.

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.
