Emma from Anamone wants to create an awareness and appreciation of where and how things are made. She draws constant inspiration the process of simply creating.
Wingnut & Co
Wingnut are committed to maintaining a sustainable practice by sourcing hand dug clay from area sin country Victoria. All timber they use is donated off cuts, and any timber waste is burnt down and the ash is used in their glaze recipes.
Katia draws inspiration from repetition in nature, folk art and the simple need for practical vessels in the home. Her pieces are functional and stunning to look at.
Jane's sculptures find their genesis in Modernist architecture and entice the viewer to look through and around the pieces. She uses terracotta clay for its honesty and a clean palette of white and black glazes that contrast with the natural clay.
