Las Doce

by Joanna on February 6, 2013

Faceted rough-hewn wood has always been a weakness of mine and the Las Doce collection from The Andes House is certainly no exception. Made from a single piece of wood, each bowl, plate, and mug is an exploration in pure simplicity and manufacturing cunning. Using both hand and machine manufacturing techniques, each piece is first externally carved by hand by Mapuche artisans, then CNC industrial robots cut out the interior. Ruggedly handsome, they are perfection.
