Unexpectedly stumbling upon old forgotten projects is somewhat similar to finding money in an old coat consigned to oblivion. No doubt equally gratifying! That was precisely what I felt when I chanced upon these place mats designed nearly five years ago. It began as an experiment dabbling with a variety of textural weaves, prints, laminated paper and reeds. Tinkering around with all that I could find in my earlier studio, it was a lot of fun to create this playful and harmonious collection of dining mats intended to protect any surface. I hope you guys like them as much I enjoyed walking down memory lane through these images.
