Colour concept by: Patrick Li
Wood Selection: Palm, Cedar, Purple Heart, Wenge
Butterfly Bio: Patrick’s butterfly set, including Palm Magic, Patrick’s Secret, and Padauk Glow, primarily emphasize wood grain patterns. The unique appearance, textures, and contrast achieved for Palm Magic was definitely worth the risk of trying out a brittle exotic wood.
Colour concept by: Carol Wong Li
Wood Selection: Swamp Ash, Spanish Cedar, Vera, Purple Heart
Butterfly Bio: Simple elegance. The dense textures of Swamp Ash provide an interesting back drop for the subtle colour accents in Carol’s Beauty.
Colour concept by: Sandie Mac
Wood Selection: Wenge, Osage Orange, Vera, Pau Amerello, Walnut, Poplar, Macassar Ebony
Butterfly Bio: The inspiration was to create a green lucky charm with light yellow accents. During the milling process, we came across a piece of bright Osage Orange that just beckoned to be incorporated. We now have an eye catching, golden lucky charm.
Colour concept by: Ivan Ilic
Wood Selection: Walnut, Wenge, Paela
Butterfly Bio: Wally was made with offcuts from walnut slabs we purchased from a local sawmill that promotes urban tree salvage. Our intention was to use Wally as a test piece for all stages of milling. The playful Wenge freckles and bright Paela body Ivan added had everyone telling us they love Wally!
