Knick-Knack Knight



Knick-Knack Knight

Visual art curiosity

Found Objects, Brass, Reclaimed Wood, Vintage Tin


Protector of the tea! This Knight is assembled from found objects and knick-knacks including a tea strainer, thimble, bolts, shells, split pins and safety pins.

Standing proudly on top of an antique tea tin, turn the handle and the Knight will move to defend with a split pin sword.

 

Display as an object d'art, plus the Knight can be removed from the tin to stand alone.

Mia has formed the character through the technique of assemblage, creating inner structures to connect found objects.

Mia enjoys discovering items in flea markets and second hand stores for trinkets to support and inspire her designs, and bring an element of history to the pieces. This whimsical piece includes a vintage tin and metal parts discovered on such a treasure hunt.

Please note that the vintage elements of the piece will contain signs of use over the years, what they lack in perfection, they make up for in character.
