“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 in beautiful finishes. Versatile on the table, these bowls are amazing when grouped together as wall hangings. ” 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. As with the forms that inspired it, the SIERRA MODERN large Africa basket in a metallic rose gold-tone finish is both functional and beautiful. With a rich surface enlivened by a geometric basket weave pattern, the large bowl sits upon a built-in square base with a discreet perforation allowing it to be wired for hanging. The handsome handmade piece lends a lively presence to any space, and makes a great fruit bowl. Mix and match SIERRA MODERN shapes, textures and finishes for an inspired tablescape!Dishwasher safe, pieces will not chip, peel or stain.
