‘Clifton’ by Hunting for George

 Clifton Collection by Hunting for George // Australia - available online // Photography by Annette O'Brien // as featured on Studio Home
Hunting for George continue on their path to be your one-stop-shop for quality Australian design, art and homeware. They really are the champion of the independent designer and have slotted themselves in there too!
Their new collection; ‘Clifton’ is inspired by summers spent in the sleepy Tasmanian, seaside town of the same name, as remembered by co-founders/sisters; Lucy Glade Wright and Jo Harris. 

“I wanted this collection to represent everything we love about Summer holidays. Our fondest memories are from our holiday’s spent at Clifton Beach. Extremely understated and surrounded by nature. I wanted our designs to reflect the simplicity and calm energy of that time.”
Lucy Glade-Wright, co-founder.

This understated approach feels good. No need to shout, no need to launch into attention grabbing prints – instead a softness and focus on actual everyday living for the laid back.
Interceded into the imagery below are also features of their latest offering of prints – again, like everything curated from both their own art AND a carefully selected group of local creators.

Its a pleasure to explore! Get in there here!

Dogdogdog

Dogdogdog - locally sourced and made products for dogs // New Zealand //  as featured on Studio Home

Welcome to Dogdogdog all your canine lovers out there!
Experienced New Zealand designers Emma Kaniuk and Tana Mitchell had already joined to form a new brand/design studio Akin when a further idea was born!
Their shared love of dogs plus business must have been fairly apparent between them, as it wasn’t long before their concept grew momentum, drawing in friends (and friends Mums!) as the makers and suppliers of their beautifully crafted bowls, toys, leads and more.

As Emma says: “A bunch of friends and trusted companies who love making stuff for dogs.”
Pretty simple really!

But the results speak from themselves, and I think more importantly, will strike a chord with you like minded fur folk out there.
Enjoy the peak into their collection below and click on through to explore this new local brand further here.

Recently she has added to her range with the new Confetti Bowls and Grid Vessels, which sport some great retro texture and pattern to compliment the smoother, gently scalloped plates.

Robert Gordon at Father Rabbit

Robert Gordon available at Father Rabbit // New Zealand - available online // as featured on Studio Home

It took me just one image in the  Father Rabbit newsletter to send me swiftly to view their collection of ceramics from highly respected Australian company; Robert Gordon.
This range is beautifully pared back and smooth but suitably “wonky” and soft for my liking. Those exquisite shell planters are a marvel in their workmanship while I dream of gathering together that family of garden bells.

A whole nother post could be focused on the story of Robert Gordon, the family passion for ceramics preceding and the generations coming on board to continue what is a beautiful legacy.

With a growing portfolio of textile and illustrative work that you can check out here – just over a year ago she also began working with clay.

I spotted her ceramics while browsing beautiful, artisan focused online store MEKKA where they have a selection of her bowls from her debut range available.
