Amaranthus and Limonium Misty Blue Flower Wall Hanger ($65)
Amar was born in Southeast London, England to a family that loved working with their hands. Amar’s family moved to Canada when she was 3 years old, settling in the scenic town of Cambridge, Ontario, where Amar still lives today with her husband and cat.
Her artistic journey began in 2008, when a friend encouraged her to sell her photography at a local art show. Amar loved meeting new people while selling her work, and she realized how art has the potential to forge relationships between people. After selling her photographs Amar had a new direction for her art: portability. She believed that if her art became portable, or wearable, it could be shared with more people, and spark even more connections. How many times have you forged a new relationship with someone who’s complimented you on what you’re wearing? Probably very often, because art and fashion are points of connection between people.
Amar experimented with new materials, teaching herself how to soder and encase objects. Encasement expanded Amar’s art into the world of botanicals and keepsakes, which are the cornerstones of her work today.
Amar’s Misty Blue Wall Flower Wall Hanger is a gorgeous piece handmade with love and care. It is a simple and delicate piece perfect for a romantic gift or a treat to yourself.
