From her studio at the foot of Table Mountain, Joanna Orr of Head On Design creates striking modern African animal wall sculptures. A graceful take on traditional hunting trophies, Joanna has added her own cheeky twist to them, of course without the bloodshed.
A big lover of nature and the African bush, her products are made with our fragile earth in mind, by using sustainable or recycled materials such as bamboo and Xanita board. She also donates to wildlife conservation.
These exceptionally-made decor items and gifts are conveniently sold flat packed with clear instructions on how to assemble.
Joanna also collaborates with artist Sharon Boonzaier to produce a beautiful range of printed and painted animal heads in themes that are typically embracing of Southern African trends.
Bespoke pieces and commissions are welcome, as well as branded corporate gifts. Head On Design also creates small to large scale installations for events and weddings.
New to the range are homeware products such as bookshelves, designer printed chopping boards and side tables.
All products are made in Cape Town
And lastly, Sbu is the muscle in the team! Besides being responsible for all the finishing touches for each sculpture, he is also a master with the technique of gold leafing.
