Denise Cummings' Profile

About



My name is Denise Cummings and my company is Aestivation Designs. The Botanical meaning of Aestivation is the arrangement of petals in a flower bud before it opens. To me Aestivation Designs unfolds the beauty of creativeness.

Quintessential to Aestivation Designs are the elements of marine life, botanical subjects, organic shapes and the Japanese art of wabi sabi each adding integral facets creating the characteristic of the items created & designed by me.

My passion for coral translates into home décor…

My passion for coral translates into home décor accessories. Inspiration from the colors and shapes of coral was the driving force for creating the Coral Antler Design used in several of my products.

My Inspiration Moss Rock Push Pin remind me of a moss covered rock in a meticulously kept Japanese moss garden and at times a rock covered with seaweed randomly placed by nature on a beach. I love the dichotomy & the inspiration of both.

I will be releasing new products weekly so please check back periodically.

Inspiration isn’t far for me. I live in Haleiwa on the island of Oahu with my husband, son, 5 dachshunds, a myna bird & a chicken that walks like a penguin named Pengey Boy.
