Stabs at Backwoods Gallery

Last Friday night was the opening of the Stabs exhibition at Backwoods Gallery,
anyone who has lived in inner city Melbourne in the last few years would have seen his work. I have seen it around here in Fitzroy for years, and I LOVE it.....
this is his first gallery exhibition, go and check it out.

Dawn Tan for douglas & hope

ok, I can finally share with you an exciting collaboration I have been working on for months,
I have a new 'artist' range of melamine plates, which are due to arrive next week.
One of the artists involved is the super talented Dawn Tan,
her 'burger and fries' are a burger plate and fries cup.
In the latest Frankie magazine just out, you can see the burger plate.
Stay tuned for the rest of the range...... it is very exciting!!!

our lovely new ballerina cup and plate have arrived today.... and in the shop already,
I was terrible at ballet, more of a jazz ballet girl, but all I wanted was point shoes and a tutu.... it never happened!
