About the wood Noferin uses:
Like all Noferin wooden pieces, the Pecanpals are made from 100% sustainably harvested wood. They are made from rubber tree wood that would otherwise go to waste. Rubber trees are planted for their rubber, and after about 20 years, their rubber yields start to diminish. We use this beautiful wood, thus saving it from the fire pit.
No two Pecanpals look the same. They are entirely hand made. We are very pleased with these figures and hope that you enjoy them too.
About the artists:
Noferin is the collaboration of two parallel minds: that of husband and wife, Candy and Nick.
Trained as a Graphic Designer – BDes (VisComm); BvisComm (First Class Hons) – Candy possesses an acute understanding of solid design principles. She brings these skills into her paintings; a medium that she finds to be more expressive and free.
Studying an Environmental Science degree, Nick spends every spare moment developing the world of Noferin in a literary sense and through wooden sculpture.
From their studio in Australia, Candy and Nick delve into the whimsical world of Carrara Island and its inhabitants – meshing the fine art, design and literary worlds together in a complete and unique package.
“Our world is a living environment that grows everyday. At first, we were shaping and creating the boundaries of Carrara Island, but now the world is so vivid and real to us that our role has changed from creator to story-teller. We are the vessels for telling the stories of Carrara Island and the unique characters that call it home. Noferin wishes to take the audience on a journey of discovery that uncovers something new and quite magical with each chapter of this perpetual narrative.”
