Reposting. Cause I love it & it’s always a good reminder.

Throwback thursday... been a while since i posted one of these... these three bench seats I made in 2013 for local #hobart shop @iconfootwear . Really enjoyed working with these clients to develop custom seating for them. ... great to develop furniture which is still being sat on... I went in the other day and the finish amd over all look is as it was when the benches were dropped off 5 years ago. #furniture #madetolast #tasdesigned #designermaker #woodcraft #handmade #customfurniture #tasmaniantimber

Last year, as I was preparing for a craft show, I got all excited about making little cup pedestals out of well used vintage building blocks. I bought a bunch of them on eBay and stayed up late gluing them together in various configurations. I didn't end up using them. They didn't really make sense in a booth setting, but I think they work well as photography props. I'm definitely going to revisit this idea!

New projects often require new tools

Today we are busy working on team @kerridennett new dining table for the @reddogarchitect Sunday St project. We finish all of our furniture and custom joinery in low VOC oils (hand rubbed). We really love the hands on approach that goes into ever project we undertake. We love that about our everyday life. #lovewhatyoudo #howwework #designermaker #design #maker #making #polishing #handmade #furniture #furnituredesign #interiordesign #workshop

FOREST GLEN, Urn, Earthenware with Underglazes and Photo Decal Overglaze, Private Collection, 24”x18”x 9”, 2012. This large, commissioned urn is constructed in 3 levels. The largest, at bottom, is two, interconnected chambers for the ashes of a married couple. The central bridge between these chambers has a perforated wall for support and to allow the ashes to mingle. The second level has a chamber which holds small ceramic ‘polaroids’, fired clay tiles with personal photos of the couple. The third level container is quite small, just big enough for wedding rings or other personal items. Due to the very personal nature of the urns, I usually make them by commission only. #urns #burialurns #reliquaries #urnsforashes #cremationurns #handcraftedurns #arturns #handbuiltceramics #earthenware #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #ceramicartist #handmade #handmadeceramics #slabbuilt #slabbuiltceramics #instapottery #designermaker #contemporarycraft #photoceramic #ceramicdecals #digitalimagery #imagetransfer #studiopottery #studioceramics #designermaker #urbanwareceramics #robertkibler
