Join is a candleholder and a storage for small objects, inspired by traditional wood handcrafting. Inspired by the first finger jointing furniture I saw when I was a kid and it really caught my attention. It was a desk that my father had made when he was 12 years old. Everything was done by hand and locked together with finger jointing.

Join is hand dyed with natural organic Beetroot juice dye that fades with time.

Note: Keep away from very bright & sunny spots to keep the color from fading.

About ShankoRugs

After nearly 20 years of working in textiles (especially silk) textile artist Sigrun Lara Shanko turned her artistic mind to rug making where she continued to broaden her skills. The original hand tufting technique was learned as a teenager from her mother.  Always breaking the mould, Sigrun created demand for her work, however she had to pursue other things in life and the tufting needle was set aside only to be rediscovered at a later date in rug making.

Sigrun L Shanko has great respect for the Icelandic rugged landscape and now it is her inspiration for ShankoRugs, where fluid forms shift with rich colours in the artist unique timeless hand tufted rugs.

 

 

The inspiration for the Sit on Iceland (SoI) collection is the need to have something soft, durable and damp resistant luxury to sit on while roaming in the wilderness of Iceland. When designing Sit on Iceland I looked closer at the earth I was standing on, the formation of moss, the jagged lava and other striking natural characters that make up the unique Icelandic landscape.  The size is ca. 45cm in diameter.

Many have asked me how they could use the Sit on Iceland – mini rugs so I came up with a little list of ideas.

  • Outdoor:: On the glacier  –  in the lava field  –  on the Arctic excursion  –  stargazing in the desert  –  admiring the northern lights  –  on a hike  –  in the tent  –  in the car  –  at the summer house (Iceland)  –  on the patio  –  and so forth.

  • Indoors::  Mini rug on the floor  –  cluster of rugs on the floor  – in front of the roaring fire  –  on the wall  –  in the children’s room  –  for the cat  –  for the dog (btw the animals love the mini rugs)  –  on that hard old bench  —  while meditating  –  to name a few.
