Sand casting, as a material process, involves the pouring of molten metal into a sand mould, yielding solid objects with unique textures and characteristics. The inherent nature of this technique celebrates the individual beauty of each piece, with poured ripples and subtle pitting adding to its charm. Over time, raw aluminium, brass, and bronze will naturally develop a rich patina, enhancing their organic appeal. For those seeking to maintain its original lustre, a high-quality metal polish can be applied to restore its brightness and shine.

Plant dyeing is a natural and time-honoured method of colouring textiles. Through this process, fabrics are hand-dyed using dyes extracted from various plant sources, resulting in colours borrowed from nature that can’t be achieved with synthetic dyes. These textiles not only mimic the tones of the natural world but also feature unique variations that arise from the hand-dyeing process.

Pure beeswax applied to textiles creates a sculptural quality, shaping the form, texture, and lustre. The scent of beeswax adds a sensory element with a deep connection to nature. This traditional method enhances the durability of the fabric. This tactile material will form unique crease marks where ruched or pinched, adding to its perfectly imperfect sculptural beauty. To even out the texture and restore the original condition, you can gently warm up the fabric with a blow dryer to soften the wax and even out the surface. Enjoy the scent as the fabric heats up.

Paper has inherent qualities, such translucency and malleability, allowing for the creation of forms and shadows. Over time, the paper softens and develops a subtle patina, adding to its organic charm. This material evolution is a feature of its inconsistent beauty and tactile quality.
