Back in December and January this year we made over 100 kids poplar chairs for the windows at Seed. Making the same item over and over again can have a very strange effect on the makers – as seen in the images below – Matt and I went a little crazy!

One of our secret poplar harvesting locations!

“Check out me guns!”

“Please sir I have a question!”

They’re multiplying!

This week I installed a teepee window display at Harvest Workroom in East Brunswick. I’m also hosting a mini teepee making course there Saturday 23rd July as a part of the State of Design Festival. Thanks to Katie and Poppy for making the lovely tree!


Hi and sorry to anyone who actually reads this – we’ve been a little tardy on the blogging front! I could come up with lots of excuses as to why I haven’t posted anything in over 6 months but hey I’ll just say we’ve been VERY BUSY!!

Joseph Fowler set up a fruit bottling business in Burke Road, Melbourne in the early 1900’s and he sold his preserving kits door to door from the back of a cart until he opened a shop in Hawthorn in 1920.  During the Depression ‘Fowler Kits’ which included a sterilizer, bottles, lids, rings and a thermometer, became a household name as house wives were urged to bottle their own fruit and jams by ‘Mrs B Thrifty’ – the cartoon character who graced the firms advertisements.

Manufacturing technics of the time formed jars with their own individual imperfections and character making no two lights the same and creating unique illumination.
