Holiday Gift Guide #3 - Natural Elements

The artists and artisans at The Collective seem to have bond with natural elements - paper, wood, fabric and metal. In their own way they take them to another dimension.

Fibre artist Lizz Aston spins Japanese kozo paper into sculptural brooches that become wearable art.

Wood turner and cabinetmaker Victor D. takes reclaimed wood and the discarded pieces on the shop floor and turns them into fine boxes and lids for Annette Hansen's ceramic art.

Printmaker Pam Lobb goes beyond paper and prints on fabric. At Anice Jewellery, silver is hammered and stamped to make three-dimensional pieces.

They are all part of the creative mix of The Collective.
