In Ojibwe, the strawberry is called Odemin or Heart Berry. This design features Sarah Agaton Howes' signature strawberry, which appears frequently in her handmade regalia and moccasins, and is shown here sharing a vine with a tulip.
This beautiful case is made with real maple that is cut and high resolution printed with multiple layers of protective coating - all lovingly crafted in our Seattle studio. It includes a matte black plastic bumper that snaps into place perfectly, providing an added layer of protection for your phone.
*Since this case is 100% real authentic wood, the images seen above are representations of the wood. Actual wood grain, patterns and knots will vary with each individual case. Your case is unlike anyone else’s in the world, literally.
Anishinaabe artist Sarah Agaton Howes is an Inspired Native who is all about thriving - not simply surviving. This is a value that shines through in her art, including these highly unique and contemporary The Fierce Heart earrings.
This contemporary rendering of the strawberry by collaborator Sarah Agaton Howes was developed from a pencil drawing to a finalized product during her recent visit to Louie's Eighth Generation studio in Seattle.
In Ojibwemowin (the Ojibwe language), the strawberry is called Odemin or "Heart Berry". The design was inspired by a inside of a strawberry - revealed when the berry is sliced in half - and the idea that having a fierce heart beating on the inside is a more significant key to happiness than even the most beautiful exterior. The Odemin is Sarah's signature motif, and it appears frequently in her handmade regalia and moccasins.
This 2-sided, lightweight mixed media earring is made with painted maple wood over a bright acrylic backdrop. The jump ring and hook have a gun metal finish.
This product is hand-painted, machine cut, and assembled in Louie's studio in Seattle, Washington.
