golden clouds

falling leaves
autumn light
confetti leaves
Oh no! A new thing to fall in love with! These gorgeous beaten brass hanging mobiles are the work of Japanese metalsmith Kanehen, and were commissioned by the ever fabulous The Shop Floor Project. The names of the pieces are so evocative ~ summer clouds, falling leaves, confetti leaves, cloud pruning, autumn light, stones, water....I can just imagine them twisting and catching the lovely!

'From her studio in rural Japan, Kanehen hand-beats brass, nickel and copper into functional and beautiful everyday utensils, sculptural button and stunning mobiles - the latter inspired by cloud formations and falling leaves. This is the first time the artist’s work has been shown outside of Japan.'

And after all that ethereal beauty there's also practical, household pieces ~ copper spoons, salt dishes, scoops, buttons, cake slices. View the collection here. What a wonderful gift they would make!
