Another project involving bud vases but this time it’s objects made for a gift shop. I’m still wondering whether using hardwoods would give the dishes more longevity but we’ll get back to that at a later stage. Funny where designing and making things takes you!
Another interesting design project which I loved transforming from drawings to actual objects. The pamphlet holder was the difficult one, one has to consider the size, weight and angle at which they will sit.
The triangular shapes were designed to both point to the card information as well as to visually interact with the rectangular shapes of cards. I was trying to move away from the standard holders and I think I’ve succeeded. This project was made for the Sol Space Pilates and Movement studio in Adelaide.
Well it’s been interesting transferring drawings to readymade objects to say the least. But so far so good with the exception of a few accidents which kept delaying the project. There is nothing like nearing completion only to see it fall apart in your hands ha ha
This sculpture was made for the ‘Woof Woof’ exhibit at Gallery Yampu, Port Adelaide for the annual SALA festival. Opens August 9th and I hope to see you there!
Had these stools hanging around the studio for months before this project, it’s always a good feeling when an object gains a new life. The funny thing is that the final design turned out to be the simplest idea but came about last during the brainstorming process.
A bit of a delayed post as I think the social media game wiped me out last year. This was a great project to design, make and it included a bit of learning too. No nails or screws in this one folks, just dowel joins which for me at least results in a much cleaner finish. Also for once there was just enough timber to complete the piece!
Here was a fun little project which allowed me to use a new gadget, and I love those! Especially when they actually work haha. I wanted to use dowel joins only in this quite minimal piece as I like the finish better than caps or putty. I’m aiming to use this technique as much as possible in the future. The orange oil finish made the piece blend in with the floor boards which was unexpected but the customer is happy 😊
Join us at the National Railway Museum Port Adelaide this weekend, one of my pieces is included in the event 😃👌🏻🚞🎨
