Eddie Myers: I use Imported papers, Mulberry and Ginwashi. Each lamp is handmade and signed by myself. First I weld a heavy steel frame, then wrap each panel with styrene backed paper, a tedious process that leaves me with a very durable lamp. I then drill and glue lucite spheres for feet. I also use lucite rods protruding through the shapes that glow softly. The simplest of my designs takes 14 hours to produce.
I love these simple cotton bread baskets from Frigg Studio.
They’re even reversible.
Birgitte of SewDanish: Since early childhood, I have been crafting and however busy life has been, I’ve always found time to do just that. Making things energizes me and makes me happy.
I love creating something from “nothing”. I often combine and incorporate recycled items and vintage fabric in my products, giving them a new lease on life.
Some years ago I was very lucky to do City and Guilds part 1 and 2 (now diploma) in Patchwork and Quilting as well as several courses in contemporary machine and hand embroidery. Pure Bliss!
I love dying my own fabrics, threads and anything else that can be coloured. I’m very excited about building up textured surfaces from lots of layers of fabric, paper, paint…. almost anything goes.
I often work a series of small numbers within a theme, exploring the possibilities. Since each item is handmade, the individual item will always be unique. Besides making contemporary wall hangings, I like making small things that can be used in daily life, like book covers, key rings, make up purses, drawstring bags, cards…
