Tactile Senses

In between working on store orders, reading about existential philosophy and cooking lentil curries, I have been working on some new forms. What do you think? Mmm… I think I’m going to keep attacking this tactile angel for a while to see what happens.

Dark Hearts

Last Sunday, we moved for the third time since we arrived in Berlin 6 months ago… not bad huh? The reason being that short subleases are much more easy to come by than longer ones. Plus, we’re not ready to commit to say a one year lease… just yet. This time, we have moved to the beautiful suburb of Prenzlaurberg, an area formally in the east which was a run down home to many artists in the 80’s and 90’s but which now, thanks to gentrification, has a bigger child population than adult. And you really can notice it too— so many baby prams out on the streets… aaaaaahhhg!

To express my somewhat jaded feelings towards love and Valentines Day shenanigans in general, I have created a limited edition series of hand cut “Dark Heart” pendants. Strung on adjustable blackened sterling silver chain. Available now from my web shop.
