Wednesday

The Wednesday collection was developed after my daughter Evelyn’s birth, when I started being interested in much warmer, loving items. It’s about discovering what feminine and decorative could mean.

This is everyday furniture which is decorated with ordinary animals –foxes, crows, rabbits – and made using simple techniques. But I didn’t want to be too perfect or too fashionable. It’s neither of the past nor of the future. It’s normal – like a Wednesday.

Wednesday mixes the handmade and the machine made, the historical and the digital.

Etched metal, wood, textile, embroidery, glass
