A series of 11 pieces composed from vintage silk-screened images of animals, designed and produced in the 50’s and 60’s for promotional plaques at hunting and fishing lodges. Each reproduction uses up to six special inks to achieve a remarkable life-like expression of their subject. Fugitive Glue gave these beautiful objects new life by encasing them in shadow boxes made from up-sourced wood and backed by dead-stock wallpaper. Happy hunting!

Meanwhile the collection explores the craftsmanship of a hand made rug inspired by the chaos of mining, dependence on fossil fuels and our drive to obtain them at any cost.

Each rug took more than two months of manual labour to complete and was woven in Nepal by artisans using locally sourced wool, silk and hemp fibres.
