We decided to welcome in the new decade with some wonderful new pieces by Clara Breen.

Who says that girls can’t fold maps?

We are currently showcasing a selection by Clara including a stunning creation made from French maps. With a subtle colour pallette to soothe those tired eyes after the New Year festivities! Contours of silver and paper trace the lines of the body. Clara creates delicate folds and concertina’s within the paper.

This collection is a bold step forward from her successful collection of pearl and fold formed silver that she has been making since her graduation from Brighton University. Her new collection still retains the elegant quality that we have come to expect from her designs. Every piece is finished with incredible attention to detail, including minute gold rivets.

Some of the collection is created using layers of tightly packed paper that has been sanded and polished to portray the smooth silky texture of wood.

Clara is happy to incorpoate your own selection of paper by special commision. I have been wondering what to do with my collection of cinema tickets…

So far it has been creating quite a stir on Upper Street as viewers try to guess what each piece is made from!
