Snowflakes for/ Shinola + WorkOf
“My father is a master snowflake maker, or at least that’s how I always saw it,” says Alissia Melka-Teichroew, founder of design studio byAMT. “When thinking of ideas for this ornament, I thought of our time together making decorations for our tree. I love that just the simple act of cutting and folding allows you to create a whole world of snow.” Here, Melka-Teichroew uses her own Ballpoint Pen print to embellish a tangle of cut snowflakes, displaying the final product beneath a glass dome. The decoration embodies the simple act of cutting and folding that allows you to create a whole world of snow.
In partnership with Shinola and WorkOf, 40 of New York’s best independent makers created one of a kind ornaments and holiday decorations in for this special auction. Proceeds of the Paddle8 auction benefit MOCAD – the Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit
