Wired! - the art of woven telephone wire
62 images Created 21 Nov 2009
Woven wire baskets from South Africa. This style of hand-woven basket made from telephone wire is a contemporary development of the old craft of grass weaving. This is a traditional hand craft and artistic expression of the Zulu tribe from South Africa. In the new era of wireless communications this is a great example of recycling or reuse where a redundant material can be re-purposed as the sole ingredient of beautiful folk art.
