This is a one of a kind hand-painted and handmade wallet,
that once belonged to a beautiful original canvas artwork by Kim Miatke.
Now the joy is spread across a small number of unique products.
No two are the same. They share the same name but all look
a bit different and have their own number.
Folded height approx. 12 cm
Folded width approx. 21cm
This wallet is trimmed and lined in burgundy cotton fabric with a handy clear coin and card pockets inside.
Here is the story of this artwork:
Let's face it, things can and will fall apart, change, alter and move. Notably evidenced by the pandemic we currently are living in.
Yet, in the midst of the constant state of unknown, the complete sense of weird & crazy and the general feeling of unease, we can know, experience and live in a state of joy. A state that says I will not let the circumstances of life dictate my ability to see joy.
Like the autumn leaves that fall, seemingly a sad season of letting go and moving on, instead this series is to remind you & I, that without the autumn falling, there can be no strengthening and deepening of winter roots, which ultimately lead to the new sweet growth of spring.
As you carry this piece, may you see afresh 'joy in the falling', in the changing, in the altering and in the moving on. May your eyes notice the colours and your heart feel the sweetness of this season throughout the whole year.
with love & joy
Here's some tips on how to love me well:
(ie. care instructions)
- take me out to dinner
- take me shopping
- gently wipe me with a damp cloth if I get a bit dirty
- take me to the movies
- take me on a date
- show me off to your friends #kimmiatkeart
- fill me with heaps of cash, if not, lollies will do
PLEASE DON’T ...
- take me swimming, I won’t survive underwater
eg. washing machines and I aren’t friends
- leave me at the shops, someone might take me home
- pop me in the fire or any other high heat environment
eg. a hot car, next to or on a heater - I will melt
- let your dog play with me, he will win, I cannot fight back
- use me as a frisbee
- forget to take me out on your girls night
- forget to photograph me and tag me #kimmiatkeart
with love & joy
WALLET - Falling Joys #02
Wallets are made from original canvas artwork, protected by a plastic outer coating and lined with 100% cotton fabric.
Each wallet is hand made and will have minor variations.
Outer plastic will scratch over time with use. It is not scratch resistant.
Do not expose to high temperatures, leave in a car or in full sun.
Do not immerse in water. Spot clean only with a damp cloth.
Colour may vary slightly from monitor to monitor, screen to screen, and there may be minor differences in colour between on-screen images and actual product. Often times, the product will appear richer in real life.
