After living in China for several years and witnessing, on a large scale, the wasteful habit of disposable chopsticks, artist Bryan Parks decided he had to do something about it. So, he set to work designing functional, sculptural folding pieces handmade from recycled, sanitized bamboo chopsticks.
Symmetrical and simple, this large folding basket holds everything from fruits to bread to decorative items, and then can be folded up to the size of a fan for easy storage and transportation.
Before becoming baskets, the chopsticks are boiled in black tea to give them a medium brown color. Handmade in the Yunnan Province of southwest China.
