Story Vases by Front


At Milan furniture fair this week, Swedish collective Front and the Siyazama Project – a collection of women working with traditional beadcraft – present a series of vases that tell the stories of five women living in remote villages in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Called Story Vases, the objects tell the personal stories of the women in glass beads threaded onto wire – a traditional Zulu craft technique that provides work for many women in South Africa. The vases are on show at Spazio Rosanna Orlandi in Milan until 17 April.
