The 5* hotel Intercontinental in Marseille contacted me because they had the idea for a long time to make a Santa’s mailbox for their guests’s children, so that they could deliver their Christmas message to the big man !
I was enchanted with their commission as Christmas is a really inspiring moment of the year for me.
I immediatly saw the mailbox in my mind, an old wooden box, with a beautiful burnt typography on it, inviting the children to post ther Christmas wishes.
I worked with a wood craftsman, showing him my sketches. He made the mailbox from a series of beautiful oak offcuts.We patinated it giving this old and traditional look, transforming the pieces of wood into a magical dream for kids !
i made the Chirstmas cards in a beautiful craft paper, with raw edges and added a twig pencil with pompoms.
