Ongoing #mending & #upcycling commissions

Hello Dear Friends 

As time goes by, little by little things fray, tear apart, and break. #upcycling and #mending are ways to reuse what usually gets tossed in the trash. Together slowing the cycle of consumption. Here are a few items that I worked on recently. Please contact me if you need something to be mended, my fees are reasonable and the work is original, one of the kind. My gratitude goes to those of you who trusted me with your cherished items and Louise and Javier at The Pushcart Present for featuring some of my #upcycled clothes.

Dear friends 

I am delighted to announce that some of my repaired and upcycled work, mck_Work in Progress, are on view and for sale at Louise and Javier's gift shop, The Pushcart Present, at Essex Market. Please check it out and spread the word. 

As always, thank you for your support. 

With love

Work in Progress latest repair.

  It was a lovely evening, a yoga group gathering, social distancing at a friend's rooftop.                On the way down, someone touched this beautiful sculpture, and it fell down from its pedestal.      Resulting in a broken arm.                                 
I worked on this item rich in this family history. Repairing and adding layers to mark the mending. 

Chartreuse is one of the owner preferred color.


                                       Glass beads and broken glass relate to this sculpture history.

     There is some yarned space for the family member to add small items of their choice over time.
                                           I look forward to see it's continued transformation.
