Sisal, hemp, stone, wood, root, clay, and terra cotta, all found in nature, have provided the raw materials while people, through their cultures, beliefs, and rites, have transformed them. Meanwhile, ocher sand, white shells, red earth, and brown bark are colors that become one with the materials, giving our interiors an incomparable charm and naturalness. Patterns are symbolic representations of an imaginary or animal world, they derive from a belief, a rite that speaks a language familiar to the soul, the heart, and the unconscious. Shapes are pure forms and provide clean lines. Art and crafts illustrated in this fine text by Stepanie Guibourge combine to offer the very essence of beauty and simplicity.
