Hello everyone, 

we are a small team of daughter and father. 

My father is doing amazing things with wood so I bought a camera to take pictures of his jobs. Now we work together - he is creating, I am photographing and sharing his work with the world :) 

My father is a member of the Folk Artists Association. He gives clases for younger students or magistrate during exams. He also has two boys working and learning together with him, tries to help young people who are interested in woodworking and creating, sometimes gives his orders that those people could earn something and like this would keep motivated to create. 

A short introduction: 

Once I asked my father to make something really special for my friend in Martinique, Caribbean island. He offered a map and it was a perfect idea. A friend of my friend from the other Caribbean island, Guadeloupe, also asked for a plate. And then their friend from Ethiopia didn't descent - he ask a plate with full africa! We started adding details to those plates, and we found it very fun to create those personalized islands, country, continent plates.

The goal: 

We are creating lots of thing from wood, but this time we will concentrate only on MAPS -  islands, country, states, continent plates, wall hangings, tables. This is our first project on Kickstarter and we want to create as many wooden countries as possible and to give this job for young colleagues of my father. Here we need your help, trust and support. 

The process:

All the products are fully handmade. The shapes are different, so it is hard to use machines. There are no templates or machines to cut elements. We paste the picture and then we cut, scrub, soften the surface ourselves. 

To give a colour for our products we use mordant that is suitable to put food in a plate. Just do not wash the plate in the washing machine.

Please check some ideas and inspirations for elements on your wall hanging: mandala, abstract, abstract2, animal, animal2.  

The reward will come with our logo on the other side. 

Risks and challenges

This is our first project on KickStarter. It might be some things we don't know yet, but experience and knowledge comes with trying and working.

All the material and working equipments are ready. The only possible problem might be delay due to big amount of orders but this we can not predict yet. Now all we need is you to give us a chance.

We will do our best to keep you informed about the process. Every comment, idea, advice would be very helpful.
