I am very excited to announce that soon we will be launching a new product range – OBJET TROUVÉ.
Objet Trouvé stands for Found Objects and describes art, created from undisguised, but often modified, objects or products that are not normally considered art, often because they already have a non-art function (Wikipedia has more info on the subject).
So what will this be you might ask? Well….I think I might have already mentioned about this a little while ago… My brother has always been doing loads of different things, (not only designing jewellery) and one of those other interests is up-cycling of vintage plates.
For us this new product range means up-cycling and re-working vintage plates, cups etc. by giving them a new lease of life. You will see them with superimposed images of flowers, birds, bugs and skulls skulls skulls!!
Here are a few examples of our experimental work…
I absolutely adore these designs and of course am very lucky to be the proud owner of several plates. We had a very good response from people that we showed them to and decided to go with this project public.
It’s been brewing in our heads for a while, but being so busy with jewellery orders we didn’t have much time to sort everything out, like finding the right suppliers, a firing kiln and most importantly the images. This is currently a work in progress project, which is moving forward and I hope that very soon we will be able to show some beautiful “objects”.
What do you think? What are your thoughts on our new products?
