HANDCRAFTED GOODS BASED IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS
My name is Lianna Hung and I am the creator and designer behind Lune Obvallata.
I started Lune Obvallata in 2010 after graduating from the University of Calgary, majoring in English and Political Science. Though I had always planned on becoming a teacher, my career took me on another path, where I have been lucky to work in several different creative fields and industries over the last 10 years. These experiences have all lead to the artist I am today, working in various mediums and creating one of a kind jewelry and art pieces.
Taking inspiration from the surroundings of Alberta, the work that I do tries to reflect the landscapes and natural beauty of the Rockies and Foothills that surround us here in the Prairies. Each piece and component is as handcrafted as possible, created in my shared studio and wood workshop space with my partner. From one of a kind pendants, to hand beaded chains or live edge wood cut offs, the pieces that are created are made with a single unique design and as sustainably as possible. Every piece is one of a kind and as special as the individual who chooses to take it home.
The name Lune Obvallata comes from the Night Blooming Flower called Saussurea Obvallata. As a child, my parents would wake us up to watch the flower bloom in the middle of the night during the summer. The flower only blooms once a year and was always a special moment - I hope to recreate this nostalgia with each piece that I create.
Thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope you enjoy my work.
