Inspired by traditional 17th century Dutch weaving techniques, Scholten & Baijings [1] designed a series of brightly colored containers and named them ‘Serious Business’. Measuring 10 inches diameter and 8 inches high, each bowl combines a touch of color with woven willow [2] made from very thin strips of the dried plant. You can find them for sale here at Thomas Eyck [3].
