Pan Pottery x Alchemy

Pan Pottery and Alchemy collaboration : handmade travel cup and naturally died bag // Australia - available online // as featured on Studio Home
Gifting something purely handmade is super special …. but I’m pretty keen on leaving the “actual making” to the experts!
In this case it would be two Australian makers with a passion for their natural environment and some skills to boot. Angus McDiarmid of Pan Pottery (based at Lake Weyba, Noosa Heads, QLD) used a traditional wood fire kiln, kick wheel and hand dug local clays for his work. Each pot, and in this instance, travel cup is completely unique as the clay and fire decide the finish. Angus has joined creative forces with textile artist; Belinda Evans. Entirely inspired by the flora and fauna of native Australia, Belinda completed the collaboration by dying the handmade, natural cotton/linen bag using natural plant based mordants and locally foraged Kangaroo Paw, a native plant.

The cups have been carefully thought out and provide a high quality alternative to other non disposable coffee mugs out there. They have a comfortable little thumb dimple, fit under modern coffee machines and their bag makes the easy to take with!

Strictly limited numbers of totally unique products can be found online here but I would urge you to explore the work of both of these talented makers. Support local ya’ll!

Hello/Goodbye by Shuh Lee

Hello/Goodbye Doona range by Shuh Lee // Australia - available online // as featured on Studio Home

Shuh Lee dances along the line of installation artist/ jewellery designer/ textile designer/ fashion designe/, homeware designer with glee. To me there is always a recognisable softness to her work, in the lines and texture but in amazing balance to the quirky, poppy attitude it all seems to exude via print and colour!! Love it all!

Shuh has just released her new collection of bedlinen with some of that exact attitude.
You can explore the pillow cases and duvets/doona’s (talking to both sides of the Tasman here!) here online as well as her other goodies!

“Doodling and playing with colours is a big part of my art practice.This range contrasts my signature fun and colourful confetti print with a more subtle single-colour print.

The little dots, dashes and strokes resemble the moving thoughts of people in their daily lives. The double sided print says ‘Hello’ by celebrating the positive and colourful moments, and waves ‘Goodbye’ to the negative, embracing the silver lining in
every day life.”

Sanctuary Studio

New collection from Sanctuary Studio // collaborating with international + Australian artists // as featured on Studio Home

Australian brand; Sanctuary Studio is a new blip on my radar but I instantly recognised it as a beacon to the fun loving, “more is more” kids out there! (By kids I mean “you” – the one with magpie eyes for attitude, boldness and colour in your life!)

Created by mother/daughter duo Anne Cook and Simone Rennard in 2015, they have led with a desire to collaborate with artists to create bedlinen, homeware and accessories that stand out in the fact its not all uniform!

Their new summery offering called ‘Neon Drive’ is a punchy mix of Palm Springs vs Bondi beach with a 90’s vibe spread across lush beach towels, bags, sarongs and more.

Browse away here!
