Hanging Mobiles Handmade by La Chaut

Posted in Life

Bright spark Laura Chautin goes by the name La Chaut, her hanging mobiles are for anyone, at any age.

Laura Chautin is a screenprinter and painter, working across set design, textile design and most recently, sculptural hanging mobiles. ‘They are all handmade by me in Brooklyn. I start by sculpting, baking the clay and then hand painting each piece. Each mobile is custom to the person who is receiving the piece,’ Laura explains. She spends time establishing how they should hang in order to showcase each element and cast shadows that best exhibit the work, ‘It’s a fun balancing act, and the results are always different!’

Perhaps unintentionally, her latest offering reminds us of the importance of play and unseriousness, in a political climate that demands action and personal accountability. Call it bright relief, these beautifully balanced mobiles bestow big smiles on each person lucky enough to have one made in their honour.

‘I love the colour and beauty of fruits and flowers – which play a leading role in much of my work – but I make sure to add in elements that I know the person will find special to them!’ La Chaut is hanging happiness, one juicy adornment at a time.

Find her at Susan Alexandra Goes to London a day of community, workshops and shopping hosted by Natalie Roar on 18th August 2018, 17A Old Nichols Street London E2.
