Ceramic Chalkboard tags by Kim Wallace

Kim Wallace has recently released her range of Chalkboard Tags and they make a lovely addition to any gift, place setting or to anything that needs labeling. They even make a lovely gift in themselves. The chalkboard surface makes them reusable, while being made of ceramic they are substantial and unique. The tags come in sets of six, and there are five different sets. All are available in the Kim Wallace Ceramics online shop now.

LOVING :: Tinker by Printink Studio

Last year I bought a gorgeous screen printed canvas bag with metallic foil from Tinker by Printink Studio, which I have been using constantly ever since. At that stage they didn’t have products available on their website, but now that they do I’d love to share them with you. Melbourne-based Jason Cesani and Nadia Husiak are the creative force behind Printink Studio. They design and hand screen print everything in their Collingwood studio in keeping with their passion for hand made products that are locally crafted. Tinker by Printink Studio products include home furnishings, fashion accessories, children’s wear, fabric and wallpaper.

Their gorgeous bedlinen is designed to be mismatched together in a lovely contemporary eclectic way.

I’m flattered to be included in this group of talented women and to have my work so beautifully shot with theirs. You can read more about all the artists on the Temple & Webster blog.

I created a small range of limited edition decorative vessels for the artisan’s market which feature ceramics together with tactile textured elements of leather and raw edged linen which are stitched, woven and crocheted. I enjoyed experimenting with the ceramic element in combination with the texture and contrasts of the other materials and techniques, and I love how they have evolved and turned out.

The Temple & Webster artisan handmade market is online for this week only, and the featured items are available at a reduced price during this time. This is the first in a series of handmade markets that Temple & Webster will be running this year, so sign up for their newsletter and stay in the loop. I have no doubt the talent in each themed market will be amazing. A huge thank you to Temple & Webster for supporting and showcasing handmade in this way, and to the always lovely Jacqui Fink for asking me to take part, for her love of handmade, and for seeking out and championing talented Australians.

Win a customised love seat from Freedom

Just in time for Valentines Day… win one of four customised love seats from Freedom! Four Australian artists (including me, eeep!) were given a bench seat from Freedom to get creative with. This is one of those secret projects I hinted that I’ve been working on this month. I started with the theme of a lovers’ secret garden and created a throw/loose upholstery, a huge tassel and did some weaving and wrapping on the love seat with copper thread. The fabric was digitally printed with a photo I took, then I painted on it and added some indigo and copper embroidery. I loved making this!

All you have to do to be in the running to win one of these gorgeous creations is enter the comp on Freedom’s Facebook page.

I was in amazing company with this project. The other three love seats were customised by Emily GreenLynes & Co and Georgia Perry.
