Treat every day like it’s a Public Holiday with these rad graphic ceramics

There’s something so satisfying about ceramics – it’s always such a thrill looking at a beautifully crafted bowl or sipping from a cute mug and imagining that it was once just a ball of clay. Seeing the beautiful finished product from an outside perspective, it’s hard to believe that clay is such an unforgiving mistress to work with. When it comes to Sydney label more

Good Grief! The dotty handmade ceramics we’re swooning over

When you hear the phrase ‘good grief’, odds are your mind wanders to either Charles Schultz’s comic creation Charlie Brown or the sometimes-unavoidable emotion of total exasperation. The words also happen to lend themselves quite well to the unforgiving nature of handmade ceramics, which is part of the reason Newcastle-based creative Jen Lanz decided to name her brand for it. Combining attention-demanding textures with unmistakeable craftsmanship, Good Grief Ceramics is one dreamy brand that connects the admirer to the maker. more

Calling all potheads – Arc + Family brings a slice of tropical pastel paradise to James Street

One of Brisbane’s favourite purveyors of such goods is Arc + Family, bringing its beloved selection of handmade wares to a charming space on James Street. more

Pay it forward – One Another does good design, designed for good

There’s really no way around the fact that we are living in a consumer society. We love to shop and we love nice things – it’s okay. It’s very easy to go HAM and make it rain at your local Kmart or Target, but things get tricky when you think about the back-story of your $10 jumper and how it came to be. It’s well worth your while to seek out ethical companies that not only sell killer stock but also stick up for the people who make it. One Another is an amazing online store working hard to provide unique handmade goods crafted by disadvantaged women in developing countries, acting on the principle that behind every one of its products there is a person and a story. more
