Why We Love This
100% handmade mobile of three seagulls (two small and one medium) and two small handmade felt balls. Wings and tail are stitched by hand. The small melamine board was hand-cut.
Japanese-born Akatsuma Masami lives in southern France, where she handcrafts her pieces. They begin “floating like dust in my head, inspired by music, poetry, people, memories, and scents.” Her hands get to work and her thoughts take delightful forms.
