The Blackened Teeth set out to illustrate that macabre objects can be turned into thought provoking articles, made alluring through colour and fine craftsmanship.
Their Lamps are true statement pieces; made using replica bones and human skulls to shed a beautiful light on death.
The Blackened Teeth was formed in early 2018 by partners Rebecca and Lee.
Rebecca’s background lies within Fine Art and Lee’s in construction.
Their combined experiences in these different fields meant that both concepts and processes were quickly brought to fruition. Together they hand-make alternative decor in their South Wales based workshop. They use subjects that aren’t quintessentially used to beautify the home.
Rebecca’s exploration in to the world of death orientated decor began through her Grandmother being an avid collector of unusual urns. Witnessing these beautiful objects housing an entity now passed, she admired how the precious remnants were rehoused in a symbolic beauteous ornament. Death’s remains had been adorned in these urns and served a powerful, reminiscent sight whilst embellishing her Grandmother’s mantle. An exquisite reminder that death can have a resplendent, halcyon presence in ones home.
Lee is TBT’s king of process and production. He’s an integral part of ideas being brought to fruition. What Lee doesn't know about tools, materials & making isn't worth knowing. Denies having a tool addiction.
