Architectonic  Buckram bowls

 

 

This  nest of three bowls , their form reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House ,is made from Buckram, a jute and hemp fabric traditionally used by bookbinders. Both hemp and jute are sustainable crops and require no fertilizers or pesticides and only use minimal water  making efficient textile crops. The bowls are designed and made in Cornwall  in the UK and can be used purely as decorative pieces or as baskets for  bread or fruit .
