Okay, it has been a long time since our last post…sorry ’bout that. We’ve been discussing the focus of Cupernickel and have decided to make a few changes.
First, we’re focusing on weaving as the main technique behind our products. It has a long tradition in the indigenous cultures that reside both in the north and south of Chile.
Second, this change has also prompted a modification of Cupernickel’s image. That’s been the hardest part. Are we vintage-y, folk-y, craft-y? We’re not sure yet, but I think every step we take is bringing us closer to what Cupernickel really is.
Third, we’ve been designing and testing out these designs like mad. Weave, think, unweave, reweave, think, take-a-picture-so-you-don’t-forget-cuz-it-might-be-a-good-idea, start another piece. It’s ca-razy! But, that’s the life of the self-employed crafter.
The picture is one of our “crazy weaves”…just one more step in the creative process.
