Each sold separately. These stunning works of art seamlessly fuse two traditional Swazi crafts—ceramics and weaving. Hand-thrown by skilled Swazi potters using organic clay, the ceramic Wildlife Bowls are hand-painted with dramatic abstracted wildlife motifs, then handed off to artisan basketmakers who incorporate the bowls’ patterns into the rims they weave from wild mountain grass and sisal. Decorative use only.


 Each 10.2"dia. x 3.5"h.
