I remember being immediately captivated when I first saw the nautical artworks by Dan Balgley in Jonathan Adler’s Shelter Island home. (Dan has created some cool typographical pieces of string art for Jonathan Alder stores, so do keep an eye out!) I was styling Jonathan’s home for the Bright Bazaar book and the unique appearance and form of the nail and string pieces intrigued me to discover more artworks that were made using this approach. So you can imagine my excitement when I recently discovered these nail and string artworks by Mr & Mrs Morgan. Based in Valencia, Spain, Hector and Maria Luisa are two young designers who create all their pieces by hand. I’m smitten with the anchor design – it’s ideal for a summer scheme! The heart would be an adorable Valentines or wedding gift, while the bear and hot air balloon are ideal for kids. Which of their designs are catching your eye? Do you know of any artists that create pieces using a similar method?
