We decided we needed a larger, stronger mop at home. We were not able to find one that was substantial enough to clean our home filled with tiles. A strong wooden handle was also a better option than the thin plastic and metal option that store-bought mops come with.
Pink Paper Proteas for a special order. Highlighted with white paint and mounted around re-cycled fringed paper centres.I loved photographing these blooms outside on the cool shady side of my home in a wooden box by Bruce Eales. An artistic representation of our very special national flower. We can make these up in a variety of colours and papers to suit your decor, or event colour scheme. Have a look at some of the proteas we have made before, and other paper flowers too
Years ago, we started out making our proteas as a form of deconstructed book art. What a delight to make a new batch again Our design has been refined and created out of many different papers over the years. This batch is on its way to a special YPO event in Cape Town.
This is the ideal handcraft to preserve the essence of sentimental embroidered family heirlooms. The table cloth with a mould stain, or frayed serviettes make ideal material. If you’re clearing out and nobody wants Granny’s linen – why not make each member of the family a linen brooch for Christmas!
This latest batch of African Proteas featuring multi-coloured paper petal rounds, highlighted with white stems and white centres. They are also sporting a few petal rounds of our new Freshly Found Protea Print.
I love to recycle! Usually I recycle papers that are forgotten or destined to be pulped. These paper origami cranes are on another level! They are created from an Edson Chagas’ PrintI picked it up a few days after the opening of The Zeitz Mocaa Museum last year at The Waterfront in Cape Town. It is one of 5000 mass produced prints of his photo series of Luanda, Angola – Titled Found Not Taken This exhibition of the collection of prints meant that each visitor to the museum was able to choose one to keep. I chose a copy of his Wooden Frame Print.
We were recently commissioned to create a set of these geometric shape pieces as table decor for an event company. We enjoyed making them, and now, as a result are delighted to add these polyhedron objects to our portfolio.
