KwaZulu Natal
Handweaving telephone wire
Ntombifuthi Magwaza is from KwaZulu Natal and learned the art of weaving telephone wire from the pioneer master craftsman Elliot Mkhize. The introduction of brightly coloured, plastic-coated wire gave traditional weavers the opportunity to use vibrant colour rather than the monotones available in natural materials. Magwaza's designs stand out because they are particularly vivid and intricate. Her use of pattern and colour is also entirely original and intuitive, which gives her work a distinctive identity.
