Story Vases

A beautiful intersection of craft and design, the Story Vases pair Swedish design collaborative Front and a collective of South African women to tell their personal stories through beadwork and glass. South African women's organization Siyazama Project empowers traditional craftswomen in the KwaZulu-Natal province to address concerns about AIDS through their beadwork. Recorded by Front, the Vases are a rare document of daily life of women in rural, post-apartheid South Africa—dreams and hopes for self and family collide with stories of poverty, gender, HIV and unemployment.
