    Beauty for Ashes is a unique lamp, designed and created out of nails and a natural wooden stump. Beauty for Ashes originated out of God’s desire that every person should be delivered from what they have done and from what has been done to them. Receiving Emotional Healing.

    The nails welded together to create a abstract version of a lady’s corset. The lady’s corset being mounted on a firm foundation, the wooden stump.

    October 2013, with my backpack and bicycle, I embarked on an adventure to Swaziland.  Curious to explore the country, but also enthusiastic to contribute creative furniture designs.  I was working as a volunteer, creating furniture for diverse people.  I worked with found objects, and had great fun redesigning the found objects into functional furniture.

    This antique hole digger was a great finding from the Saligna Wood factory yard.  There was no question that the antique hole digger needed to be redesigned as an exquisite light.

    My Kitchen has a brand new look and feel, by painting the existing cupboards with Plascon ageless paint.

    I also had a lot of fun using magazine snippets and motch potch to decorate the kitchen drawers.  And I used interesting found objects as drawer handles.
