Ana Jensen Ceramics
I am a full time potter living in the western district of country Victoria, Australia. I make a range of hand-thrown domestic ware for daily use, as well as some sculpture. The domestic forms I produce - vases, bowls, milk jugs and platters - have a clean, contemporary style, reflecting my Danish background. They are glazed in a range of colours and fired in my gas kiln.
Studio Smith Torquay
Studio Smith Torquay is where Marion Smith creates unique, Australian contemporary jewellery.
She is a silversmith who predominantly creates in sterling silver, enamel or mixed metals. Marion also paints landscapes in oils and acrylics.
Limited edition homewares and loungewear handmade in Geelong.

The Bearded Woodworker
The Bearded Woodworker hand crafts beautiful practical items, including cutting boards, knife blocks, spoons/spatulas, cheese knives/slicers, coffee grinders, scoops & tampers, pizza cutters, ice-cream scoops, tongs, rolling pins, napkin holders, coasters, shaving brushes, pictures frames and, my most popular item, a blackwood clothes horse.
I use recycled or scavenged timbers, including Blackwood, Redgum, Victorian Ash, Myrtle, Huon Pine, Jarrah, Mulga, Cypress Pine, Yellow Gum, various wattles, banksias, and fruit woods. Items are finished with different oils, depending on their use, to preserve the timber and bring out the colour. Contact me if you think I could make something for you.
I have been making ceramics for over 30 years and draw upon my background in science and my love of nature to capture in my designs the aspects of my surroundings. I am passionate about protecting the world we are leaving for future generations and so make products that help this goal. I use the natural elements of the earth, clay, water, minerals and fire to create products ranging from travel cups to tableware.

Products for purchase include a blend of high quality prints, utilitarian porcelain shapes decorated with decals and sterling silver and porcelain jewellery.

Tree and Leaf
At Tree and Leaf, I handcraft unique and unusual timber pieces. My works include delicate feathers, tactile little birds, wafer thin maple leaves, wall plaques featuring owls and stingrays and wall mounted vases using wonderful Australian and exotic timbers, all recycled and responsibly sourced ... perfect for that special gift.
Each piece is hand formed to create unique naturally organic forms, which are then painted by hand. Loving to explore the old techniques of the past in ceramics, then adding my unique designs. All things old are new again. My hand painted and drawing are created one by one and are inspired by my love of nature and animals.
The Boho Suitcase
Hey! I'm Lucinda and I'm the owner and founder of The Boho Suitcase! The Boho Suitcase project was born out of the idea that Bohemians would travel and not be locked down to anywhere, packing their most precious things in a suitcase and travelling from place to place.
We like to imagine the modern day Bohemian would have some of our handmade treasures in their bag of tricks!
We create journals, notebooks, and home decor from repurposed and found objects!

Inspiration for her work is drawn from Australian native plants and animals ... the beautiful beaches along the Great Ocean Road ... and from her every day.
With a passion for making and an obsession with cotton, Jo has developed her own product range where she can be free to immerse herself fully into her creative world.
Wayne Reid Photography
My photographic prints, greetings cards, books and exhibitions, offer subject matter that ranges from the political to the philosophical, from the poetic to the whimsical. Although encompassing abstract and fine art, nature and landscape imagery, perhaps my main focus is landscapes, and while my love of the 'grand landscape' is well represented, I also love the 'intimate landscapes' found in close-up and abstract photography. Another interest is the remarkable and subtle beauty that arises when the passage of time and the processes of nature perform their transformation on the works of human hands … think rust and derelictions!
Specialising in upcycled materials.

Coastal Tide Clocks
My recycled tide clocks track local tide times. Great as gifts for beach walkers, to keep your shoes dry; the surfer in your family, so he knows when low tide is going to be; and the fisher folk who catch the most fish on the turn of the tide ... or just for fun.
Using CDs/DVDs destined for landfill, each clock features images that are either my photos or paintings. One less item for landfill and a clean ocean inspire me to create and educate on the wonders of our ocean's timing and patterns.
