Memorial Art

A tangible memory of a special bond with your horse or pony. Let something beautiful arise from a precious relationship. Marianne uses the hair of the tail or mane in a unique work of art.
For example a refined weaving that can also be framed behind glass, so the artwork remains dust-free or an 'embrasse' with porcelain and leather.

"My aim is to capture your special bond in a unique and very personal work. Even if you only have a few hairs from your beloved horse or pony."
