The Art of Recycling

About me

Base studio2 About meAbout me: My name is Carmen Bjornald. I have been an passionated crafter since i learned to use scissors. I remember lovely moments of my childhood, sewing, painting, cutting and glueing together with my family. It was so much fun!

Most of the time, our craft table was filled with things found around the house or in nature on one of our long sunday walks. It could be an empty egg box, a old shirt or some nice stones, driftwood or shells found on the beach. I was taught to respect the environment and to observe the evolution of eco and social lifestyles.

Creating accessories using recycled material is a very stimulating challenge. The materials initially intended for other uses force me to constantly learn new techniques in order to adapt them to their new function.

A product can produce a low environmental impact, be original and of good quality. A complete circle is defined, at every step someone smiles: the wastes are recycled, the use of reclaimed material does not cause any harm, the final customer has a unique piece, and I se my project take shape, with great pleasure.
