Product Description

A gift for this holiday seasonal time, a receptacle for twelve grapes for the New Year's Eve, made with Glazed ceramics and silver. Of course, the piece also could be used for other appetizers or desserts: olives, frozen chocolates truffles,....It's modular and stackable.
Working the 3D shape we saw the resulting form as the perimeter of the African continent, and then we thought the idea of launching the product with a solidary approach, earmarking 120 euros for each sold piece to a Non Govermental Organitzation for the fight against hunger in Africa, or 12 euros in ceramics. http://www.shapeways.com/model/386884/africa__ceramic.html?gid=sg63286/

More info about "twelve grapes" tradition (Source: Wikipedia) *The Twelve Grapes (Sp. Las doce uvas de la suerte, "The twelve grapes of luck") is a Spanish tradition that dates back from at least 1895 but become consolidated in 1909. The tradition consists in eating a grape with each bell strike at midnight of December 31. According to the tradition, that leads to a year of prosperity. Each grape is eaten with each beat of the bell. This tradition was adopted also by places with a broad cultural relation with Spain such as Mexico and other Latin American countries, as well as Hispanic communities in the United States. Countries as far as the Philippines have adopted the tradition.*
