Creation Process for the Brass Collection
While working on my hardware for the Poppies Collection in Tuscany, Italy, with the craftsman responsible for Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabana, and beyond, I was inspired to make my wood carved bags into brass carved bags. The team I discussed the idea in length, as this sort of project would be complicated, laborious, and difficult.
After much brainstorming, I decided to have my Magical Mangku Carver in Bali carve my new designs and hollow them so that I would be able to make molds of them and carefully adapt them into brass carvings. The work was intense and arduous. It took us over a year to perfect the method which entails taking small individual carvings of brass and meticulously hand-soldering them together to create the masterful Conference of the Birds Carved Brass Collection.
The solid brass carved bags are carved-out to the maximum amount, in order to create bags that are not too heavy to carry. The bags are then coated in golden hues (or silver and rose gold, by special order) so that the color will last a lifetime. Click here for care instructions.
