The Odd Ones | Upcycled Collection
An eclectic range of one of a kind upcycled and repurposed objects, vases and sculptures.
Melina has an obsession with collecting things. ‘The Odd Ones’ is a concept birthed from the realities of not being loved, feeling ugly and broken; seeing flaws and imperfections in oneself and having the desire to purposefully embrace them - much like these objects - they were overlooked, discarded and left behind. Melina found them, held onto them for years, restored them and brought them back to life. The original objects were found on the streets, at thrift stores and markets; they will now be seen and valued.
Empowering a more considered approach to thoughtful living through sustainable practices; this collection challenges the mainstream consumer mindset, encouraging people to make wiser choices and to see the beauty in what is not conventional attractive.
