What matters for this series named Bozidarov Orah (orah means walnut in Serbian), is his modesty, perfect organization (I wish I was that well organized), his open mind, and his love toward nature. Interestingly, the two people who taught me very important life skills, to read/write and to use the needle (crochet and knit), themselves didn't practice it. My Nana (http://www.etsy.com/listing/37295222/my-nana-grandma-willow-inspired-original) was illiterate herself - she knew all the letters, but was not able to put them together into a word. She taught me each letter and from that point it was easy for me. She was an extraordinary artist with a needle, though, crocheting incredible items; I was always envious of her ability to work with tiny threads and almost invisible thin needle. And still, although she was the one I was around so much, it was my Dad who taught me how to start knitting and crocheting. I still recall that day, the needle and my amazement. I wish I could ask him how did he learn, as he didn't do any crocheting / knitting that I saw. On the other hand, he was a bookworm, but my Nana did the initial work with me on my literacy. Life has a curious sense of humor :-)
That is why this first opus in the series is something that reflects on who I am as a result of Bozidar's influence:
Each work is inspired by a daring to combine things that are elegant and unusual, emphasizing the beauty of each skill combined, respecting the nature, and serving a purpose.
Each item in the series is one of a kind and each is made of true cured walnut wood. Each is protected with wood conditioner.
This particular holder is 5" long, close to 2.5" wide and 1 and 3/4" tall. It has a larger slot for say a cell phone or an mp3 player, four slots for pencils and a medium slot things like a flash drive (or whatever you feel like). Each holder is signed at the bottom.
Holder was designed and made by me, Tanja Sova. Thank you for reading.
