Our Artist Collaborations

We are inspired by beauty with depth and meaning. We collaborate with artists and makers who lend their essence, ethos and aesthetic to our units of wellbeing, bringing to life the idea that beauty and can be found in everyday objects of use and simple moments of self care.

 
ROSE-MARIE CALDECOTT - fine artist

 

Our contemporary apothecary glass bottles are adorned with paint textures by fine artist Rose-Marie Caldecott. The featured textures are small sections of Rosie’s work, chosen to depict the essence of each LA-EVA scent. 

In her studio, a stone's throw away from our own, Rosie creates paintings that contemplate how nature can simultaneously embody both flux and order, fragility and resilience. In Rosie's words:

I am seeking moments of balance between that which I can control and that which I can not. Through the process of painting, I am trying to better understand 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.

Visit rose-mariecaldecott.co.uk  to find out more about Rosie's work.

Our journal piece 'Artist in Residence - Meet Rose-Marie Caldecott' reveals more about this budding artist and the inspiration behind our collaboration.

 

  

 

 

IZZY WILLIAMSON - print maker

 

The LA-EVA logo, a held pomegranate by Yorkshire-based print maker Izzy Williamson, whose bohemian, figurative style and love of rich, bold colours we simply love. A ‘maker’s mark’ laden with symbolism across cultures and centuries: the simple pomegranate, its ripe crimson seeds representing abundance, spirituality and sensuality.

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.

MEINKE FLESSEMAN - fine artist 

Portugese fine artist Meinke Flesseman has lent the escapist beauty of her series By The Sea to our Rosēum Exfoliants & Salts, transporting us to places beyond the here and now. Connecting beauty, art and sentiment to the source of our precious hand harvested "flowers of salts" (fleur de sel) in the Algarve.

For Meinke, what is around her is what ends up living inside, before coming out again in the form of painting, tiles, or ceramic pieces. Works such as "Water Bliss" - the painting that is illustrated on our luxurious card tubes that contain the salts - evoke the movement of waves rippling when you enter the sea, the sun reflexions in the water, the background fuzz of a summer afternoon. "I created the water paintings because I wanted to extend 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).

Born in Holland, Meinke moved to Algarve at just 2 years old. She spent part of her youth studying Fine Arts and travelled through countries such as England, Japan and Russia. 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.

CÉLIA MENDES - ceramicist

 

“My motto in life is a phrase from the Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935) : ’Put everything you are, into the minimum you do’. I took a risk starting my personal project the “4elementos Cerâmica & Azulejo” studio, in a globalized world where many artists are handcuffed. 4 Elements Ceramics & Tiles is inspired by the four elements: earth, water, air and fire; these primary elements that come together in the creation of diversity. I think of my work as artisanal with an urban spirit, traditional artistry with a contemporary and current character. 

Our bespoke ceramic tear drops, made at Célia’s Studio 4 Elementos Cerâmica & Azulejo in Olhão can be used for pouring our fragrant Rosēum salts into a warm bath, for blending our washes, lotion or oil with the salts when using them as an exfoliant, or simply as a standalone ceramic dish for jewellery, tea lights or other small items.
