Alexandra Llwellyn to collaborate with artist Miranda Donovan
Positive Luxury’s sustainable luxury games board designer, Alexandra Llewellyn has recently embarked on an exciting collaboration with fine artist Miranda Donovan. The exclusive, limited edition, Clerkenwell Collection will be launched on the 2nd July.
Llewellyn, an admirer of Donovan’s work, approached the artist with the idea to fuse decay and luxury. The Clerkenwell Collection will consist of 10 boards with Llewellyn’s one-of-a-kind art as the background. One of the artist’s proofs will also be available to purchase for £8,600, directly from the artists.
For the Clerkenwell Collection, Llewellyn attempted to fuse two contrasting notions: Miranda’s work exploring the darker sides of civilisation and its decay, and Alexandra’s luxurious games. Llewellyn then worked with her team of craftsmen to build on Donovan’s signature rough surfaces – framing certain pieces to give it a more luxurious feel.
The boards also include Llewellyn’s trademark semi-precious stone playing pieces, cut from mother of pearl and black obsidian.
