“I like to use wearables as a starting point. This design is a pattern to make your own squished penny buttons.”

Seeking out spaces between art and design, performance and daily life, Natalie’s work begins at the intersection of human needs and gratuitous objects. Founder of the clothing line Hunt & Gather, the Makeshift Project, and Thing to Thing, Natalie has shown work around the world. Always smashing boundaries, she proves even a penny can be transformed from currency to fastener and accessory.
