magical, collectible, original art for a delightful home
Collectible 5×5 Art Blocks
We believe in original art. We believe in handcrafted high quality. We believe in sustainability. We believe your walls should be delightful and full of whimsy. We believe in magic.
Our creations tell a story on all sides: the front is original artwork by Michelle. The sides and backs are covered in salvaged library book pages. The wood itself? It’s salvaged too, so every piece is beautiful for your walls and beautiful for the earth.
Start a collection for your walls or for someone you love today!
Inside the Studio
Our hands touch each piece we make countless times: we take pride in the handmade process and our exquisite attention to detail. We use only the highest quality archival prints, non-toxic sealant, and durable salvaged wood, so each piece is (hand)made to last.
mkc photography is an eco-friendly, hand-made gift & home decor company that creates gorgeous art and wares using salvaged wood, paper from damaged library books, and original art by Michelle Ciarlo-Hayes. Customers love to purchase our artwork both for themselves and for gifts because they know each piece gives new life to otherwise discarded materials. We’ve been making beautiful things by hand in our Philadelphia-area studio since 2009.
