Melk offers an arresting line of hand-made cuffs, wall plaques, prints and limited edition pieces.
The concept of up-cycling plays heavily into the inspiration for each piece, as materials are found or reclaimed, then re-purposed into limited edition, hand-crafted works of art. Illustrations are screen-printed, burned or etched onto up-cycled surfaces, utilizing a variety of reclaimed natural and man-made materials.
Melk’s subtle illustrated themes and stories remind the viewer to live simply and appreciate the delicate balance of our surroundings.
This body of work is a collaboration of designer Chrystale Thompson and product designer Jeremy van Nieuwkerk.
