Compass Rose, sometimes called a windrose, is a figure on a compass, map, nautical chart or monument used to display the orientation of the cardianal directions - North, South, East and West - and their intermediate points. (Wikipedia)mentioned last week that we once designed a line of furniture and accessories based on a story we concocted around a stylized version of ourselves which we called Compass Rose. In this story Braxton was a scientist/inventor and I was a photographer/botanist. We/they lived during the turn of the century, probably in Britain, in gorgeous yet modest circumstances.
In truth, Braxton is an inventor of sorts and I am a photographer of nature, we live modestly and we both love travel and learning and being surrounded by beautiful things...not much of a stretch I know.
The original catalyst for this story was a piece of jewelry Braxton gave me for a significant anniversary......
|This was the inspiration for the lighting for the CR collection. We imagined this as a hanging lamp or on a shepards hook almost like a street lamp. Can you see it?|
|We'll be talking more about story boards later.|
|Sorry for the wrinkles, these have been in the corner of our studio for a couple of years now.|
|This is just an example of what their house could have looked like.....in reality the line we designed was more inspired by British campaign furniture...pictures to follow.|
We'll be exploring all these subjects (campaign furniture, story boards, Victorian fashion, invention, nature photography...) and more this week.
|As always, if you would like to be a part of this conversation....don't be shy, let's talk! |
Have a beautiful day.
