We were stoked to have a chat with talented Melbourne jewellery designer Abby Seymour. We’ve been following her work for the last couple of years and we’re currently obsessing over her Australis collection which is inspired by the natural beauty of the Australian bush. Abby has seamlessly merged her signature geometry and fine detail with natural shapes and textures and the result is stunning. One of our favourite things about Abby Seymour is her commitment to environmental sustainability and ethical labour practice which we hope means we’ll continue to see her work for many years to come!Read More
You may recognise Eric Landon from his mesmerising pottery throwing videos on Instagram and the unique and beautiful pieces coming out of his Tortus studio in Copenhagen. We were lucky to catch up with Eric in the beautiful Tkawei Studio near Torquay, where he had just finished a ceramics masterclass. We had a quick chat and learnt a little more about his journey, his craft and the role of social media.Read More
The words “copper-plated steel furniture” conjure up images of sleek lines and smooth, shiny surfaces. Michael Gittings however has taken this technique and created organic, sculptural furniture that is rich in texture and almost unendingly complex. Through playful experimentation he has refined his technique and we were very happy to sit down and find out more about how he does it, and what inspires his work.Read More
Sarah Schembri combines her love of pottery, food, sharing knowledge and making people happy at her studio in Fitzroy, where she holds classes, produces her range, and unwinds after a hard day’s work.Read More
Following on from our previous article introducing the PET Lamp project, we were lucky enough to catch up with Alvaro as he was preparing for the upcoming NGV Triennial exhibition which will feature the PET Lamp collaboration with the Bula’bula artist weavers from Ramingining in the Northern Territory.
PET Lamp was invited by the National Gallery of Victoria to travel to Australia where they immersed themselves in the community at Ramingining in Australia’s north, working with eight indigenous artist weavers to create stunning circular lampshades using traditional local techniques.
We had a great day at the Mercator building at Abbotsford Convent, the home of Cone 11 Ceramics and Porcelume.
It was a lovely sunny day at the workshop, when we visited Ilona Topolcsanyi from Cone 11 finishing some tableware commissioned for a restaurant. We also met Colin Hopkins, the maker behind Porcelume, as he was working on a medium size shade using the art of hand‐throwing porcelain, a skill that he has mastered through the years.
We had a chat with both of them about their work and their passion for ceramics.Read More
MINI LIVING - INVERT has officially commenced. The 14 models are currently on display in a
glasshouse on the site of the design brief in Melbourne’s CBD.
The architects have embraced, challenged and explored the MINI LIVING - INVERT brief, which
was to create a home for a family of four on a six-by-ten-metre site. For example, panovscott’s
House of Houses design provides a home not only for a family, but constructs defined ecosystems that support specific plant and animal life.
We found Sophie Moran while interviewing other creatives in Brunswick , it was lovely to meet her in person and chat about her work and her amazing pieces.
Making inspires my making. I find inspiration in the materials themselves and the endless possibilities that clay and glaze provide.Read More
