Heartbreak Home Adornment - Umntwanam
Recently we have started making items of adornment for our homes. Many of these items are part of our Heartbreak collection, which takes as its founding motivation the need we have to honour the important events in our lives, whether those events are sources of grief or of joy. These pieces are labelled with their origin story, and we encourage you to add to that story with your own motivation for buying the piece and the life event which it marks. Of course, sometimes that story is as simple as ‘I deserve things of beauty in my home’.
This piece is called Umntwanam, meaning My Child. I designed it in early pregnancy, daring to hope that things might work out as I dreamed.
We will be making ten of these in total. One is in stock, and the rest are available to pre-order, to be shipped three weeks after ordering.
