Bench: Works from a collective studio

Bench is the collective workspace for local emerging jewellers Andy Lowrie, Shanna Muston, Clare Poppi and Katie Stormonth. This exhibition will coincide with the Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia 2013 Conference in Brisbane, and showcase some of Queensland’s up and coming talents.

9 – 31 August 2013

Cook’s Toolbox by Backwoods Original

Son of a stonemason, grandson of a carpenter and great grandson of a blacksmith, you could say working with his hands is in local designer Aaron Barton’s blood. In response to his own desire for better functionality in the kitchen, Barton designed the Cook’s Toolbox, a series of bench organisation products. Each Toolbox is hand made from re-milled salvaged hardwood and industry leather offcuts and finished with food grade Tung oil. This will be the Brisbane launch of the first product line produced by Barton’s brand Backwoods Original, which until now has specialised in one off commissions.


Ella Mobbs

6 September – 19 October 2013

Ella Mobbs

Ella Mobbs is a local graphic designer and illustrator, who is fast building a name for herself with her vintage bone china cups and saucers that have been upcycled with her slightly twisted illustrations. Think skulls mixed with kittens, bows and cupcakes, with a few disturbing details thrown into the mix.


Lesley Kendall

25 October – 30 November 2013

Lesley Kendall

Ivory St will be turned into a kaleidoscope of colour in this exhibition of fused glass spoons and platters. Kendall is one of only a few artisans working with glass in Queensland and her functional items explore colour, shape and pattern.
