Building on one of Meadowlark's most-loved recent collections, new pieces join our coveted collaboration between Claire and Charlotte Rust of Auckland vintage furniture store, Babelogue.
Long-time friends - Claire Hammon, Meadowlark’s designer and creative director and Charlotte Rust, a vintage collector and owner of Babelogue, share a love for exceptional design, in all its forms.
Drawing on classical Greek sculpture, including the Venus de Milo - this collection sees the addition of an elegantly shaped Grecian jug, delicately sculpted foot and hand, as well as the initial Venus bust - a nod to timeless design, powerful femininity and eternal elegance.
A favourite of Charlotte and Claire's, the hand - the ultimate tool, represents strength and power, generosity and lending a hand.
"Aristotle said, 'the hand is the tool of tools.' Hands convey strength and weakness, care and cruelty, creation and destruction. We feed ourselves using our hands, express joy and anxiety, greet and farewell with our hands. They bare the most outward signs of hard work and are indeed the most incredible tool," says Charlotte.
Inspired by ancient sculptural human forms - the foot, says Claire “is meaningful in many spiritual practices, symbolising freedom, respect and subservience," whilst the jug, “an object that has existed for centuries, is a symbol of good luck and wellbeing.”
