kitsch and collage

On a recent trip to Australia, one of our design director came across this amazing shadowbox in the gallery A-Space on Cleveland. This shadowbox is full of antique chalk figurines and vintage ceramic animals. It’s called “Garden of Eden (Paradise Begins)” and was assembled by Australian artist Clinton Cross. Our design director was most excited and inspired by Clinton’s aesthetic. Also, she loved the way he took antique collectables and assembled them into a piece of modern art.
Our assistant accessories designer, Callie, was so inspired by the shadow box that she created her very own. She was surprised by how many figurines she could fit into such a small space! Check out her version…
