Spoiler alert! We simply couldn’t wait to be surprised by the delights at tomorrow’s City of Craft Spring show. So we’ve been stalking the vendors online to give you a sneak peek at our new, favourite things.
City of Craft is one of Covet Garden’s go-to destinations for discovering up-and-coming makers (and to find out about new projects from our favourite creators such as Crown Flora, pictured above). The spring show is an invitation-only event, so it represents the best of local scene. It also makes it really hard to choose just a few items to represent the selection, but here goes…
We’ve written about Lana Fillipone before, and by gum we are going to write about her again. We simply can’t get enough of Fillipone’s delicate and droll porcelain.
As always, we're suckers for Bookhou bags, and the show promises new prints and colours to make us want to collect even more of these amazing satchels.
We also adore the vintage inspired graphics on RC Boisjoli's collection of ceramics. The Badger's Brew bottke is our fave. The badger itself is a collaboration with illustrator Ian Phillips, who will also be at the show selling his amazing screenprints.
The creative team behind Falconwright will be well-represented at City of Craft. Fans will be happy to see their familiar pouches, but Danielle Wright will aslo be showing her geometric jewellery designs while Sandi Falconer will be presenting her artwork.
This is but a fraction of the good stuff at the City of Craft Spring show. Head down and then let us know what you got (or wanted to get) in the comments below.
