Husband and wife artists, Matthew Shlian and Thea Augustina Eck, teamed up to create their recently launched collection called Eight Emperors. The collection is a series of handheld heirloom objects that are meant to “instill a sense of wonder” and they do just that.

The line is currently made of wooden and paper objects for you to pass on as little treasures to the ones you love. Joining forces and talents, the duo are able to share their love of making things.

In 2013, they will be expanding the line by creating objects in ceramics and other materials.
