ITEM#: 13079383

This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

Argentina and Francisco present an abstract bowl handcrafted by the students of Asociacion ADISA. Strips of recycled paper create the unusual shape of this bowl.

Product Features:
  • Made of recycled newspaper and magazines
  • Several coats of varnish for protection
  • Measures 4.5 inches high x 8.1 inches in diameter

Story Behind the Art:
Francisco and Argentina's daughter Nyla Eliza was born with hydrocephaly. She passed away when she was 10 years old. They founded Asociacion ADISA in her honor. What first began as a support group for parents and children with special needs, ADISA has now become an association that provides education so that children can join mainstream schools. Youngsters adore making recycled paper crafts so they may eventually have a craft when they are too old to attend ADISA.

  • Interesting but watch out for certain things

    The bowl itself is interesting but it is smaller than expected. 8" in diameter is edge to edge so the bowl actually looks 6" diameter, since 2" accounts for the rings that taper downwards. My biggest disappointment is the color. The photo shown here has blues, greens, and reds that add a lot of interest. The actual piece I received is nothing but paper bag beige. The only reason I kept it is because the proceeds help working families overseas.

  • decorative bowl blows me away

    I was leary buying this thinking it was going to be some flimsy bowl, but it's not, it's really a very cool bowl and a great conversation piece. I have it sitting in my living room with photographs in it so any one can pick up a pile of pics and browse through them, but people end up talking more about the bowl! It took a long time for delivery, but the description indicated that right from the beginning. I might have to buy a few more to spread them around the living room
