Fletcher & Myburgh met in 1999 and soon shared a passion for art and nature and ultimately a vision to create functional metal work that people could interact with. Caroline’s previous collection for Liberty, Steve’s background in sculpture, and a Princes Trust loan heralded the start of Fletcher & Myburgh.
Both artists have been led by their desire for a natural and organic lifestyle and by choosing precious recycled metals they’ve achieved a just this. By drawing inspiration from the terrains in which they both grew up, rolling hills and curving lanes, heat and sunshine, the passion for form is evident. The result is uber chic pieces of copper and fire that work with all the elements, come rain or shine.
Fletcher & Myburgh’s magical mood swings draw their inspiration from nature and the world of fantasy and wonderment.
The Fletcher & Myburgh Swing Collection contains seven awesome types of swings as it follows:
The classic Jasmin swing is the most delicate of Fletcher and Myburgh’s mystical swings. Its twisted curls of wrought iron create a blissful hanging retreat that let’s you just go with the flow. The best thing about this swing is that although it looks delicate it can carry more than one, so pile in, share abedtime story, escape or just float.
