The Earth is Watching Us
  Searching: Earth is Watching Us

Threads of Africa

A collaborative project between Mdukatshani Development Trust and Julia Meintjes Fine Art

We invite you to view our first collection of bowls and bangles woven by talented weavers from the Thukela (Tugela) Valley in fine 18-carat gold, silver, copper, brass and shakudo wire.

Still, the dark red, orange, umber, or mineral landscape is stretched before us like the foreshowing of a vision. [...] The burnished terracotta of the pots reflects the light [...]. The texture of each vessel's surface is equal to our own. For the earth is watching us ....

Nimrod Liane (poet and philosopher, born Chad, 1959, in Terres cuites africaines un héritage millénaire - Musée Barbier-Mueller and Somogy éditions d' art)

View the short background videos about the weavers and the process of making the bowls and bangles.
