“As a female designer, I am inspired by craft traditions of women from around the world,” says Beatriz Ball. “This new collection honors the remarkably intricately woven baskets of Africa, rendered in sand-cast metal with beautiful finishes. Versatile on the table, these bowls are amazing when grouped together as wall hangings.” <br> Beatriz Ball extends the innovative SIERRA MODERN Collection--featuring iconic designs in modern new metallic finishes of Gold, Rose Gold and Gunmetal--with a line of Africa Basket bowls, each offered in four sizes. Dishwasher-safe, decorative, and also perfect for serving, they add a modern new dimension to Beatriz Ball’s award-winning designs.<br> The SIERRA MODERN jumbo Africa basket in a gold-tone finish is fabulously functional and dramatically beautiful. With a rich surface enlivened by a geometric basket weave pattern, the jumbo bowl sits upon a built-in square base with a discreet perforation allowing it to be wired for hanging. A masterpiece in the art of sand-casting, the generously proportioned bowl is a real showstopper, and makes an awesome centerpiece. <br>Mix and match SIERRA MODERN shapes, textures and finishes for an inspired tablescape!<br>Dishwasher safe, pieces will not chip, peel or stain.<br>Beatriz Ball’s intensely handmade products use eco-friendly and sustainable materials and are crafted by artisans who trace a heritage of metalworking for generations.
