Las Doce Tableware by The Andes House
by Harry / April 9, 2012
From @theandeshouse, a tableware collection made of wood carved using a traditional technique used by Mapuche artisans, an indigenous people from south-central Chile and southwestern Argentina.

The utilitarian pieces, bowls, cups, plates, are worked like sculpture by Mapuche artisans, then made functional in an industrial workplace.


From a single piece of wood, the artisans work the outside through the cut, and then the inside is emptied using an industrial lathe.
