Zulu Artists Create Dazzling Pieces from Telephone Wire

Zulu basket
If you haven't seen African telephone wire art before, check out the July-August issue of Veranda magazine. This beautiful art form is on display in the Santa Fe home of architect James Rimelspach and art consultant David Arment. These multihued baskets and containers are created by South African Zulu craftsmen and women out of colorful plastic-coated copper wire. Marisa Fick-Jordaan and Arment have even coauthored a book about the craft entitled, Wired. Proceeds from the book's sales support charitable efforts, including HIV/AIDS relief in Africa. You can see more these unique and affordable creations at http://www.indigoarts.com.
