We look to the arts for inspiration on beauty.
We collaborate with artists and makers who lend their essence, ethos and aesthetic to our units of wellbeing.
Rose-Marie Caldecott - fine artist
Our contemporary apothecary glass bottles are adorned with ethereal paint textures by fine artist Rose-Marie Caldecott who lives in Ashburton, Devon. The textures we have chosen to feature are small sections of larger paintings, nodding to the idea that beauty is often found in the detail of life. They have been carefully selected to capture the scent and sentiment of each La-Eva product.
Our Sensorial Rituals lokta boxes feature Rose-Marie's "Celestial Bodies" series. The series contemplates "how one might exist in the in-between spaces, on the fine line between order and chaos, knowledge and mystery - this moment and the next."
"We do not exist in a static universe but a beautiful complex one and dynamic one. We seek balance in a fluctuating existence. To soften the edges of our frames and be at peace with the unknown that lies beyond them".
Izzy Williamson - print maker
Our distinctive held pomegranate logo, and many of the figurative artworks that feature within La-Eva are creations by Yorkshire-based print maker Izzy Williamson, whose bohemian style and use of rich, bold colours we simply love. Izzy's work draws on our connection to the natural world, expressing unique, whimsical narratives that are inspired by folklore and mythology as well as the small joys of every day.
Nathalie Moisy - Fine Artist
Nathalie Moisy is a French artist living in Oxfordshire, whose works come as a contemporary fusion of Western and Japanese aesthetic principles. Layered with meaning, metaphors and visual cues, her work explores recurrent themes including Nature, Landscapes and the power and intricacy of human relationships.
During the pandemic we came together with Nathalie, whose work we have exhibited at the La-Eva studio on several occasions, to create a unique limited edition range: a bright, emotive new intepretation of our capsule range, its' signature scents and the sentiments bottled within. Referencing Schubert, the Japanese cherry blossom season, Camus and ocean pollution, this unique edition embodies an integrative approach to beauty and wellbeing, bringing together the arts and philosophy to the sinkside and daily rituals of self-care.
Meinke Flesseman - fine artist
Portuguese fine artist Meinke Flesseman lent the escapist beauty of her painting "Water Bliss" to our first edition of Rosēum Exfoliants & Salts, connecting her art to the local source of our precious hand harvested "flowers of salts" (fleur de sel) in the Algarve. The painting, as all from Meinke's "Summer Series" evoke the feeling of the moment; the waves rippling, the sun reflexions in the water, the background fuzz of a summer afternoon. "I created the water paintings because I wanted to capture the freshness and joy of the summer holidays", says Meinke. “They are about a moment in time. A dream coming true. A place many of us would like to be right now." (October 2020).
In her work, Meinke mirrors her close relationship with people, nature and animals. Describing her style as figurative, her work is characterised by layered textures, depths and intensity in the colours, taking the audience on a full emotional and sensorial journey.
Emma Cassi - Multidisciplinary artist
Emma Cassi is a French multidisciplinary artist living in Madrid whose work spans jewellery design, fibre art, embroidery, weaving and natural dyeing. Drawing on a deep love of nature, Emma creates pieces inspired by herbalism, foraging, gardening and essential oils, sewn together with a love for delicate silk fabrics and vintage haberdashery.
In 2021 we exhibited Emma's work at the La-Eva studio and borrowed sections of her Herbarium series to adorn our gifting range. More recently, we have began a calligraphy collaboration with Emma which continues to evolve and we shall be sharing in the time ahead.
