The Balancing Act : A Photography Project.
We often get asked about the true purpose behind our collaborative products with artists. Our tea towels are functional products, so yes drying your dishes with a piece of art from David Shrigley is a thing! However, we also balance this with the idea of our products becoming accessible art, collectibles if you wish! Tea Towels can be framed, Mugs can migrate to a shelfie situation as sculptures and hankies can be worn as art around your neck! We are all about that Balancing Act. Enter our latest photography project! By partnering with Melbourne Set Designer Melanie Martin and Photographer Sam Penninger to showcase a selection of our accessible art products in a hand-built environment, we wanted to showcase our favourite artist collections in their own right.
We hope your eyes like looking, we loved playing with this idea and with the wonderful minds and talent of Melanie and Sam we are so proud of the final images.
