Sotheby's auction house has collaborated on the LOEWE Weaves project, a collection of unique handcrafted pieces including decorated Galician chestnut roasters, woven leather bags, baskets, and accessories.
The main protagonist of the set is Galician chestnut roasters: a handcrafted earthenware bowl with multiple perforations. The holes are functional, but the fabric they make is a perfect playground for various weaving techniques. As for accessories, LOEWE Weaves expands the textile idea to include finely crafted leather and raffia accessories rich in craftsmanship: bags and bracelets, as well as woven and intricate vases.
The handcrafted wares, created and reinterpreted by pottery artist Antonio Pereira, will be displayed alongside exceptional pieces for Mayo auctions at Sotheby's for Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary Art in New York. The gallery will open on May 1 with some of the most outstanding artworks from the 20th and 21st centuries that Sotheby's will put up for auction on May 12, when the exhibition ends.
The pieces on display will be sold at a fixed price at Sotheby's Buy Now online marketplace, beginning May 1 - making LOEWE the first luxury fashion house to be sent exclusively to the platform.
