Porcelain rings

This style ring was our first foray into making jewellery from clay.
Initially we thought we may some control over the sizing but the stoneware firing process had other ideas! We have found it impossible to gauge how much each ring will shrink in the kiln.
These rings are not cast from a mold, they are hand built so the form is never the same.

Craft and Design as a Career

We are very pleased to be taking part in Craft Victoria's Month about Making.
A Month About Making is a festival of public events, workshops, residencies, exhibitions and forums focusing on the practical and conceptual elements of making, inherent in craft and design. Throughout August, A Month About Making will explore current trends in craft and design practice, professional development opportunities for practitioners, contemporary craft and design philosophy and writing, and the place for 'making' within creative and cultural industries.
Barbara and I will be speaking at the Craft and Design as a Career seminar taking place on the 29th of August.
There is a interesting and varied line up of people talking about their work and the different experiences they have encountered along the way.

Architectural ring

Double sided rivet rings

Normally "two faced" is not a positive way of describing someone but "two faced" things are a completely different matter.
Our rivet rings include a double sided porcelain disc that can rotate to show both sides.

Magnolia Square in Malvern

Magnolia Square is back in Malvern this Thursday to Saturday.
This pop up shopping concept is thoroughly unique and overflowing with products and ideas that are exceptional in their originality, quality & style. Drawing on a growing stable of over 150 talented artists, designers, stylists, craftspeople and gourmets, the product mix is diverse and unique.

We have made a limited run, thirty to be exact, of these notepad and coloured pencil sets that will make their first appearance at our stall on Thursday.
The blanco note books are made from 100% recycled paper and Barbara has hand drawn and coloured all the cover images.
What can I say about the pencils, Who doesn't love a pencil made from a twig!

Out of sight, out of mind.

These porcelain faceted components were made over a year ago but we just couldn't work out what to do with them.
They were put away and forgotten about.
Barbara found them while looking for something else and they sat on our workbench for about 2 weeks (They were too pretty to put back in a drawer and forget about again).
Seeing them sitting there every day helped in keeping them at the forefront of our minds and we found a way to use them.
