Ethical Eco Art - Recycled goods from the 1950s

 

This cupboard (above, left) reflects man and nature, but with a wistful and romantic feel to the design – ideal for use as a memory box. It has been painted gold for a feeling of opulence, but toned with earth colours of green and bronze.

Drawing on the link with nature, there are pressed primroses (harvested sustainably from our woods) which frame and surround extracts from some letters written by a German father to his daughter in England just after the second World War.
