    Story & Highlights

    FOUNDER: Gillian Lawrence

    TEAM: founder + 1 full-time employee

    LOCATION: Cape Town, South Africa

    MATERIALS: Silver-and gold-plated brass, bronze

    "Our pieces are mangled and misshapen, their beauty defined by their uniqueness. Warped and tangled brass, squeezed into an endless array of shapes. Knobbly and bulging freshwater pearls: precious minerals molded by the elements in the mouths of oysters. Sketches and doodles in metal, as spontaneous as they are unrepeatable. Ornamental oddities found at junk sales or picked up on the street, hand-cast in brass and given new life."
