Redux is pleased to present:
An Art Installation by Casey+Bryan of WolfTea
First Friday Featured Artists October-November
October 7th, 2016
Casey and Bryan are mixed media artists working with found and repurposed objects. Each object, whether its a skull, bits of metal, antique beads, or thrifted frames and tins, becomes a new precious entity honoring it’s original form. These pieces will be displayed for two months as an installation in our front window and on our gallery walls. We could not be more stoked for this exhibition, which will be just in time for Halloween! Stop by the shop opening night during the First Friday Art Walk for some seriously spooky art and the meet the artists behind this incredible work!
Wolftea is a small business working out of our tiny home within the damp woodlands of Washington. We are a husband and wife duo and have been running our little business together for the last 3 years.
Our work is meant to bring a new life, a new perspective to materials and items that may otherwise become overlooked or forgotten, lost an abandoned. We strive to keep most all of our materials secondhand and salvaged, meaning they all come from a variety of places.
Bones and animal remains are collected from ethical and secondhand sources from roadkill to nature finds, from bone dumps to garage sales. 90% of beads and mismatched findings are reclaimed from old broken jewelry, found objects, barter, thrift shops, garage sales,flea markets and gifts. We also hand-make a portion on our beads and charms from clay, wood, bone and scrap metals. Fabrics and leathers are collected from old found coats, thrift shops, free boxes, secondhand craft stores, garage sales, trades,gifts, left overs from other crafters and scrap bins. Feathers are obtained from molting birds to small family farms, from found feathers in our coop to secondhand thrift stores.
The reason behind using salvaged materials is that each bead, each bone or each charm has its own history to contribute both aesthetically and energetically. As you wear,display or gift these creations to new homes, you are enriching the history already embedded within.
We hope our work brings inspiration to you<3
