This tray brings together the art of Sally King Benedict and our iconic St. Frank indigo textile pattern. Sally King Benedict is a contemporary artist living and working in Atlanta, Georgia. Sally has the ability to create visual texture with a rich, adventurous color palette and expressive linear techniques. She has hand-painted her iconic faces on our trays for this limited edition collaboration. Only 5 pieces of each tray will be produced.
More on our indigo: Since ancient times, from opulent Egypt to stark West Africa, fabric has been dyed a mysterious, beautiful blue. The indigo color, or "gold blue," is a symbol of the link between heaven and earth. Through a careful process, indigo can produce a vast palette of blue hues, from the palest sky to the deepest midnight. Dye vats alone take a full week to prepare and require daily stirring. The un-dyed cloth is pinched, sewn, and tied according to precise patterns. Once dye is applied to the material, the ties are removed, revealing patterns of lines, shells, dots, or tracery.
