Mental health postcard "Praying for asteroid"

Mental health postcard "Praying for asteroid"
£1.75 1 Available
Love this


Postcard print of art created from the slow process of softening, cutting and twisting leaflets from medication packaging into fine handspun paper yarn. The letters cut from the leaflet are recombined to form words both comforting and cathartic.....set deep within a cut in the yarn, like a whisper.

Send some validation and solidarity with this expression of frustration!

Made from thick 300gsm cardstock with a matte finish and uncoated on the back for writing on.

Other designs in the shop:

"Take you time"
"Keep Breathing"
"Have a bath of tea"
"Fuck this shit"
"Stop the world"
"Praying for asteroid" diagonal
"Here for you"

The yarn ends in organic looking "leaves". Between the cracks and on the edges of the leaves is gold ink.

Whether your meds help you, are unwanted, or you are struggling with coming off them, they play a role in our lives. And we have to digest and reshape this experience to build our lives. The gold reminds me of Kintsugi, the Japanese practice of mending broken pottery with gold, as it follows the cracks in the curtain of yarn.
