After four big days spent launching our new range at the 2011 Design:Made:Trade it really feels like a whole new set of friends have been made.
What a pleasure to share our stand with local potter-extraordinaire Shelley Panton (one day soon I hope to be turfing all of my mismatched crockery from Savers and swapping it for a dinner set made by Ms Panton) and ceramic jeweller Yumi Ando whose charming pieces beckoned every time I peeped at them. Be sure to visit Shelley's store/studio in Middle Park - it is an old butcher shop that is jam packed with her own work and that of a whole lot of local makers.
Thanks to all who dropped by to say hello and a super big thank you to Craft Victoria for hosting us under their banner - you guys rock.
We look forward to officially photographing the range and making it look pretty for our online store. We've got cushions, totes, fabric by the metre and a whole lot of DIY kits. Stay tuned.
