We are very excited to welcome works by Momoca to our shop. Momoca makes a wide array of beautiful objects and decorations including the incredible candles she has made for our shop, shown above. Using transparent paper, she cuts and hand-paints the flowers and inserts them into the candles. We think they are so stunning and brighten up any room! We show them here with candlesticks by Astier de Villatte- we love the combination of these two handmade objects. We imagine the colors above with matching blue and white table cloths, all white or contrasting colors. We can see them mixed with many different styles.
A bit about the artist - Momoca is an artist based in San Francisco. She has explored many different fields, from millinery and fashion, to painting and ceramics, to photography and art installations. She is currently working with transparent paper to create 2-D and 3-D objects. Her background in pattern making of hats and clothing as well as the Origami all Japanese children learn, inspire her to create imaginative paper installations and decorations. One of our favorite collaborations she routinely works on is with Alice Waters at Chez Panisse making decorations for special events. We think her pieces lift spirits and bring celebration to the everyday.
We have added these to our online shop in the home section, along with the candlesticks. You can have a look here.
