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 ....
