Beauty, craftmanship and Function

 African Fence Collection

Celebrating traditional craftsmanship and utilitarian beauty

Travelling around Zimbabwean countryside in school holidays and to and from sports fixtures on Saturdays, I would marvel at the sturdy yet beautiful wooden fences. Constructed from carefully selected branches, they protect and secure the precious livestock held within, practical and crafted with care and skill.

In the dry winter months, when the green vegetation disappears from the landscape, the African fence’s irregular patterns criss-cross the landscape, standing out against the arid ground and clear blue skies. Rhythm, texture and contrast, pure inspiration
