Ceramic City

We all love a bit of ceramic hey? And everyone knows I like a bit of a ‘not quite perfect’ finish in my ceramics.

These deeee-vine vases have just arrived from the lovely Samantha Robinson of Sydney - they are just amazing. All hand made and painted, and every single one is unique. I think the small blue is my favourite… today anyway.

Don’t they sit just beautifully along side the other new arrivals from Clay Australia - also sydney-siders. And also totally hand made and unique in their own little ways. The teeny tiny spoons have to be my favourite. Along with the amazing colour selection that reminds me of gelati. So great to be able to support local, hand made, one of a kind talent. Aint it just?

It wasn’t a Rock

It was a Rock Lobster….

yes I’m showing my age and quoting B52’s - but oh my, what a classic song huh?

So that brings me to this. These super new wall hangings by local Geelong outfit Ballyhoo Art. Choose from my favourite, Rock Lobster or the oh so lovely, and oh so glamorous, Penny Peacock (who is actually this beautiful deep navy colour - I love navy). Hand made in Australia and hand painted - such crafty coolness for your walls!

They also distribute these gorgeous cards from Schmook - as seen in the lovely Frankie Mag.

Oh Me Oh My Indeed!

You know what - I don’t even know where to start on this one. Truly, this has to be the most beautiful, amazing, inspiring artwork we’ve had at Mac Pelican. And that’s the honest truth.

Tuesday Designs is their name and these incredible artworks are their game. Sisters Taryn and Elise are the creative duo that started it all.

Dresses are meticulously pieced together from pieces of antique fabric, while birds peer from cages of embossed paper, or out of pear trees that look like clouds. Skirts hide the blackbird in the rain - each wing painstakingly pieced together after perhaps hours of sifting through piles of tiny off cuts searching for the perfect piece. Most are sourced from the remnants of vintage kimonos.

They are honestly breathtaking - the incredible detail makes me gasp.
