Carlos Alberto Montana Hoyos‘s “A La Lata” Candy Bowl is part of a collection of items handcrafted with repurposed aluminum can tabs woven together with zip-ties. The bowl appears to “float” on the translucent zip-ties. Its structure allows it to collapse inwards, with the zips packed tightly together. In this inverted position, the bowl can be used as a pencil holder.
