Bud Vases and Soap Dishes

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!

Tea Vase Holders (2019)

Another interesting project, this time made out of used skirting boards. The brief was to have the vases hang just a couple of millimeters of the bottom of the frame, which visually makes all the difference. Don’t think I’ve done anything like this before, thanks to Clarity Massage and Wellness Centre for the commission 😃👌🏻✏️🔨📐

Card and Pamphlet Holders (2018)

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.

TV Cabinet/Table (2017)

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 😊
