DYAD

Posted by SELFI

Launched in 2016, Project Dyad is a Cape Town-based studio specializing in the design and manufacture of contemporary leather accessories.

Inspired by the dualities that define all creative processes, “Project Dyad” explores and experiments with the unfamiliar, constantly evolving and refining its original concept with timeless style.

Fusing meticulous attention to detail with functional design and innovative construction techniques, Project Dyad merges beautiful contrasts and complementary opposites to form a dynamic, yet harmonious balance through the union of different parts. Focusing on an experimental, process-based approach, all Project Dyad creations are handmade in-house from top quality, locally sourced leathers and materials, and it is this custom-craft approach that allows us to develop work that we truly care about and manufacture in a socially responsible way.The range offers a varied selection of aesthetic solutions for both work and social occasions.

Playing off the dualities of line, colour and texture, each piece is designed to accompany the wearer as either a statement piece or be worn with subtle sophistication for a more understated look and feel, but regardless of how one chooses to wear them, all Dyad creations are guaranteed to grow more beautiful with time.

DAYFEELS

Posted by SELFI

Dayfeels is the creative sobriquet of South African artist and photographer, Amor Coetzee. The inspiration for her work stems from a deep appreciation for the landscape, the ocean and the properties of water. Amor is very drawn to a clean and muted aesthetic and work through a process of elimination, starting out with a lot of detail and removing bit by bit until only the very essence remains. Her work tries to communicate a sense of calm, as subtle as susurrus. Dayfeels Illustrations are based on aphorisms- a metaphorical phrase which embodies a feeling, these phrases are used to create simple line drawings. 

An extension of her artworks, the ceramic side of Dayfeels, lets her experiment more with texture, contrast, abstract shapes and patterns to create hand-made, one of a kind earthernware pieces.

GITHAN COOPOO

Posted by SELFI

Githan Coopoo is a creative from Cape Town who makes simplistic, sculpted  jewellery items by hand. His abstract pieces have beautiful organic shapes and are crafted out of unexpected and innovative materials like clay. Coopoo is steadily increasing his jewellery line’s impact through fashion and is 
constantly inspired by different things such as volume, India, what we consider to be opulent and how that changes as well as queer culture.
He works exclusively with clay in making ceramic jewellery. As a medium, he feels that it is deeply universal and a commonplace. He believes that there is a  paradox that exists with elevating an everyday or seemingly mundane material into something quite precious and rich. The ceramics are fragile and delicate, more so than metals or traditional minerals which he feels inhances its beauty. He believes that conventional jewellery is prized and considered precious because of the worth and value of the materials used, whereas his jewellery is also precious – not for its monetary value, but because it is delicate, and must be cared for.
