Dani M designs @ enCounter Craft Vic

27 01 2010

Australia Day was so sunny, I thought I’d amble around the city. I didn’t realise it would be so busy with people attending all manner of events – so it wasn’t quite the solitary or relaxing walk I was expecting. Then the acrobat planes flew overhead and I was so in awe I felt like a kid again – fun!

A wander past Craft Vic was on the agenda, to see what is in the window.

Dani M is a local maker, and crafts her pieces from porcelain. I like how her site states her work is ‘NOT a well marketed charm bracelet of ugliness‘ – we seem to share a horror at the proliferation of crap jewellery.

While the black and white porcelain pieces are more for me, the pastels aren’t really my thing. I have seen Dani M’s work at markets over the last year, but looking at her site I don’t remember before seeing the ‘Tea Party’ collection – I very much like the simplicity and lines (and finish) of these silver pieces.

Dani M is showing at enCounter at Craft Vic until 31st January 2010.

Update (31st January 2010): Craft Vic blog has a story and some great images of this window here.
