Design: Ars Nova
Ars nova: (“The new art“) A term used to identify the experimental musical style period of France from approximately 1300-1375.
I have studied the historic parchments and notations to make suitable designs, that I then hand etch on to my antique materials. Every item in my online shop, I have designed and etched by hand, which makes them unique and one of a kind items. I wanted to create something meaningful and beautiful but I also wanted to include the mindset of sustainability in to it. Therefor the materials are old antique items redesigned for a bigger and musical purpose of connection and friendship.
The items patina therefor gives the history and culture context more veritas, and also reminds us of the people who came before us. I also arrange, record and make music videos of all my designs. In the different slideshows down below, you can see some of the designs from different Cantigas and painted images.
Ars nova (Latin for new art) refers to a musical style which flourished in France and its surroundings during the 13th century. The term is sometimes used more generally to refer to all European polyphonic music of the fourteenth century.
The period from the death of Machaut (1377) until the early fifteenth century, including the rhythmic innovations of the ars subtilior, is sometimes considered the end of ars nova but at other times an independent era in music.
