Australian designer Abby Seymour is a creator of handcrafted jewellery, pretty painted porcelain, and detailed print works. Here is a taste of her work.
Fiona Watson is our featured artist this Wednesday. She lives on the southern Gold Coast and creates beautiful lino prints which deliver an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Many of the works feature fibro houses, breeze blocks and caravans perched amongst simple seaside vistas. She takes the old back to a time when it was new. These aren’t just pretty pictures; they are happy memories. Fiona hand cuts and prints the works herself but was able to take some time out to answer a few questions for Collate Culture…
CC: If you were to paint a picture of your studio, describe what would it look like right now?
FW: A busy space filled with drying prints, Lino blocks, artists inks, brushes, sketches of works in process and collected objects and photos that inspire my work.
Jordan Davis is a designer, maker, photographer, cinematographer and lover of Tasmania. It would appear that this guy’s hands were made to make. Apart from being a talented and successful photographer, he also throws clay and turns it into beautifully rustic pots and dishes that you just want to wrap your hands around. His leather goods are robust yet simple and sleek and made to last. These products just seem to take you to a nice cosy place that you haven’t been to for ages … and you want to stay. Just a couple of his products are featured below.
