This fabulous label creation from Gail Armstrong is a personal project done as a "thank you" for some friends.
After a holiday last summer in Zanjice - a fairly cut-off part of Montenegro, Gail discovered that all the olives from the area were gathered from everyone's property at the end of the season and sent to the community press to be made into olive oil. She says " However, the hand-written labelling left much to be desired, so as a "thank you" I created these olive oil labels. The paper sculpture scene is the view across the swimming pool of one of the landmark villas in the area and the ribbon flourish has a blank area where the date of pressing can be written."
