The Architact Collective are delighted to introduce their first collaboration with Kaitlin Beckett of A Curious Bestiary. Inspired by graffiti, Linda reached out for Kaitlin to consider using her Timber House Rings as a miniature canvas.
Together Linda and Kaitlin have created a series of 6 limited edition hand-painted laser-cut wooden rings. The rings are available via the Architact Collective website where you can choose your favourite design and ring size before Kaitlin creates your ring to order.
Kaitlin’s love for the fantastic and the imaginary are evident in each unique and beautiful design where she perfectly depicts the unusual engaged alongside the everyday. If you love Kaitlin’s art then these rings are for you!
Kaitlin work is inspired by the natural world, odd dreams, cryptozoology, literature and science fiction. She encourages those that see her creatures to invent their own narratives, allowing them to take on a life of its own beyond that of its original making.
Kaitlin seals each ring with a polymer prior to painting. Layers of ink, fluid acrylics and chalk pastel are built up to create the colour and background texture before the design is refined with black and white ink for detail and highlights. The ring is then varnished with 2 coats of polymer and 3 layers of glossy UV-protecting archival varnish.
