In the making
Overton starts out life as raw strips of bark. These then go through various traditional processes – including shredding, washing, natural bleaching, boiling and drying on fabric screens – to make a highly textured paper. This is then torn and artfully reassembled again to make each, unique piece.
The mount & frame
The pieces of paper that make up Overton are lain onto a stone-coloured linen backing and then framed in timber for yet more texture and muted, natural colour. The frame is veneered in oak but is, in fact, made from pine because, being so large and deep, oak would be much too heavy for hanging, whereas pine doesn’t have quite so attractive a grain and colour. Together, they’re the best of both worlds.
A styling tip or two
The size and depth of these pieces (whether square or rectangular) is such that they work especially well alone either hung or propped against the wall – such as above (or on either side of) a fireplace – where they can have the space to shine. The rectangular one can also be hung portrait or landscape.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
