black and white blossoms...


We are feeling very satisfied with ourselves this morning after finally perfecting our 3D paper heart blossoms. We have been playing around with this shape, and how to position it, for some time now and have never been totally happy with the end result. However, this composition has us doing the 'happy dance' as it satisfies our rule - if we don't love it enough to display it in our own homes we won't sell it. We love the experimental phase of creating new artworks, especially when we end up with the buzz that comes from translating something we have pictured in our heads to something that can be hung on the wall.

We are making three of these black frames, all slightly unique, but with the intention that they could be grouped together. Then the plan is to create some white on white versions and perhaps eventually something more colourful. They may take a little while to hit our web shop, but in the meantime feel free to send us an email if you are interested.

The end result looks just great - but I'm also loving the white version in the earlier post below!

Hi Clare
I love it! The second photo really shows off the 3d effect.

This really is beautiful work. I hope to see you at the next boutique markets - if I can get away from my stall!

I think this piece of artwork is absolutely fantastic! Graphic and delicate at the same time. I've just blogged about it here;
