Hosshaus Micro Wallets

First Batch

The first batch of my redesigned micro wallets are now up for sale on my Etsy store.

Made from remnants and upcycled leather, each one is hand cut and hand stitched using waxed twine. They are prefect for reducing the footprint of a conventional wallet.

Volkswagen T-shirt

Originally designed for my self due to a lack of VW Vento T-shirts on the market (like the cars they are rare too), I have changed the text to Volkswagen to appeal to the wider VW fan base.

This image is printed on a soft heavy T-shirt, with a larger printed area than the photo my Vento one being worn.

Rabbit Run Bench

Multi-functional garden furniture.. Unlike many of the things I design that never make it off the computer this one did. Made from recycled pallets, this simple bench has two removable seats allowing you to enjoy your garden and feed your rabbit at the same time.Rabbit Run Bench 2014

There are also plans drawn up for a matching lounger / table for those with furry friends that don’t get on; as well as corner chairs in a similar style.

A Very Special Art Lamp

On showing an old neighbour what I was up to, I was asked if I could make one using old photographs as it was his parents wedding anniversary coming up. Saying yes I was presented with which needed touching up.

I’m not a whizz with Photoshop, but I was (and more importantly the customer) happy with the results.. retouching most of the scratches which would have really stood out when illuminated.

and then of course putting it all together, I think it remains my favourite. Unfortunately I have lost the photos of the lamp illuminated, the important part is the customer liked it; so much they came back for another.

Adapting images of my artwork (www.matthewharris.info) for the art lamps is a simple process. Some pieces work work better as a mirrored image, such as the George Art lamp

Where others like Temptation work better as a wrap around image.
