Do You Know The Maker ?


A few weeks back I grabbed this beautiful decoupaged chair image (and what I thought was it's link) and for some reason the two lost each other.  Does anyone know the maker? I know it's a collective out of South Africa (I believe I found it via a South African magazine - but my search has come up empty handed).  I'd love to hear from you if you know (they make some beautiful pieces).  In the meantime - this image actually inspired me to look into decoupage myself - it's been years since I've done anything like it and have totally forgotten how.  I did a post on it (a how-to link, along with inspiration) over at Babble today.  Click here if you're interested.



Update:  (Thanks to reader Mariana - we now know.  It's Amanda du Plessis and Elizabeth Pulles of Evolution).  Thanks Mariana!

Sorry don't know the maker either, but I would love to own it! Maybe you could make some yourself.

Hey! that looks an awful lot like the work or Leslie Oschmann...she's not out of South Africa, though...so, it could be someone else. Leslie is a mixed media artist, she creates collages on old chairs and bags and tables...you name it...her company/shop "swarm" is located in Amsterdam (her chairs were featured on man shops globe in 2010, I believe) and you can view her works here:

or you can watch a little bio of her here (you have to scroll down to hollan/belgium episode):
http://www.sundancechannel.com/man-shops-globe/one-of-a-kind/
and if these links don't work, contact me on my blog and I'll email you ;o) hope this helps...even if SHE'S not the artist behind this chair, her work is inspiring.

Saw another similar chair in new edition of Ideas magazine (www.ideasmag.co.za) ...Evolution Chairs, sold at Poetry shops. Might be the same as mentioned above?
