Description

Details:

The owl was a bird of prophecy and wisdom in many ancient cultures. Its wide eyes seem to miss nothing and when an owl moves it seems calculated. Even though the colors and designs on the owl are human interpretations, the perched look is defiantly natural. The artist uses capiz shell on the wings to highlight the reflective nature of some of the owl?s feathers. The basic frame of the owl is created using tin, which is powder coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin wire along the inner edge. Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz come through as tans and browns underneath the paint.

Story Behind the Art:
A gecko lamp started it all. While vacationing in the Philippines in 2003, the founder of Eangee Home spotted the charming piece. A talk with the creator sparked an idea, and upon returning home he and his partners opened a small retail store to sell the lamp and similar items. A few years later they realized that if they shifted their focus to becoming a distributor they could bring a wider variety of unique, sustainably made products to the market. They decided to focus their partnerships with makers in the Philippines since the concept of creating by hand and being detail oriented is part of their cultural tradition. The unique designs they offer are a result of a collaboration of their experience from years in retail, and the creative minds of the artisans with whom they work. They are committed to ensuring that all of their products are eco-friendly and are made of renewable and/or recycled materials with food- based dyes and low-impact finishes.While the business has grown, they've stayed true to their core mission of filling people's homes with sustainable products while supporting the talented makers who create them. To help ensure this, all makers they partner with have access to clean, safe working spaces, living wages, healthcare, continuing education, and quality housing. Eangee Home is a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council; a coalition of manufacturers, retailers, and designers dedicated to raising awareness and expanding the adoption of environmentally sustainable practices across the home furnishings industry.
