BODOLI a perfect name to describe the unique quality of our frames. It means exist in English.
The pieces that we make are made from pebbles and driftwood sourced locally. Each pebble is handpicked to reflect the personality of the individual frames that we are creating, which makes each piece completely unique.
The stamped lettering is instantly recognisable, each letter is hand stamped which makes it completely personalised.
Having found it difficult to find a modern personalised gift for our little ones – we came up with our own designs. We wanted something lovely to look at that would be a timeless piece of art.
We use local suppliers where possible, and source the highest quality we can find.
We find inspiration from the unique and magical landscapes, the culture and the language.
Our work creates a feeling of nostalgia and an identity to Wales.
Meet the maker
Rhiannon Ling is the artist behind Bodoli. She’s the creative vision and, more importantly, the person that makes each of our designs by hand…
“I am a wife and mum to 2 young children, a daughter, a sister, an auntie and a friend. My family and friends are very important to me which is why I love creating special pieces that capture the meaning of families and friends to people.
Ever since I was young I used to create things and paint everything.
My poor mum used to be so worried when I’d say “Mam come and see what I have done”. It ranged from sewing things, drawing things to painting all the furniture in my bedroom.
Basically not much has changed; just now it’s my husband who is worried when I say I’m going to paint.
Imagination is the beginning of creation.
You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.”
