This is a great example of a Tuscan farm grain sieve. For a bold statement, hang this sieve on a wall instead of artwork. It will look fantastic!
Sieves of all shapes and sizes separated grain from unwanted material. These kinds of sieves were fundamental in Tuscan agriculture with each having a specific use depending on the grain. Like many things in Tuscany, these tools were made by resourceful farm workers from recycled materials. You can see that part of the sieve has a circular design and this part was salvaged from a round sieve. The rest of the sieve was crafted with two hand pierced square pieces to complete the form. Since there were no hardware or farm supply stores around, you made these things from scratch or repurposed something old, but in true Italian fashion, never wasted a thing.
