kate p i e k u to w s k i original artworks by

Kate Piekutowski Artist Kate Piekutowski recently completed a Masters of Fine Art and Design at UTAS, majoring in printmaking. Kate’s impressive body of work consists mainly of etching, a historic technique that she says evokes memory and nostalgia. A first-generation child from Polish migrants, her inspiration is drawn from European history and ancestry. Kate uses a monochromatic palette, intersperses of red and melancholic line expression to create pieces that are intriguing and beautiful.

spoon s av v y designed & made by

The odd fork is a desired object too. Stainless, silver, enameled or EPNS plate, these relics are carted home to the Spoon Savvy workshop, hammered, filed, bent, buffed and polished into a range of savvy jewellery and home ware designs. Angela’s passion for what is old gives life to something new. She sees her focus on this medium as providing a vessel to explore a world of design through a simple object, the humble spoon.

dish pig designed & made by

Jen Murnaghan Created in Tasmania in 2011, Dish Pig is the dream of Irish expat Jen Murnaghan, now happily making Tasmania her home. In an attempt to reinvigorate the humble souvenir, Jen uses her experience in interior design and creative marketing to develop a product that Tasmanian’s are proud to send overseas or slip into the luggage of an overseas visitor. Many get so attached to their tea towels; they have been known to hang them on their walls rather than on their ovens. Who said a tea towel was for dishes anyway?

bentwood coffee lovingly made by

Megan McTurk & Chris Spillane Local lovebirds Meg and Chris launched their inspired Bentwood Coffee venture in March 2013. The combination of seriously good coffee, served out of a cleverly renovated vintage coffee caravan ticks all the boxes! Meg (a barista at Pilgrim Coffee by day) along with Chris (builder and restorer extraordinaire) delight in providing a high standard of product‌(did we mention their coffee is seriously good?!) in a fun, friendly and exciting way.

t h e w h o, the what & t h e w h y. . . the market is a boutique art + design event, showcasing independent Tasmanian designers, makers and producers. It is held six times a year in the intriguing Masonic Temple, Hobart. Since its inception in 2009, it has become widely known for its exciting line up of exclusively local labels, along with its firm focus on authenticity and craftsmanship. With an impressive collection of exhibitors from a wide range of disciplines, visitors to the market can expect to see established fashion illustrators sitting alongside small scale producers of bespoke ceramics. A very particular approach to stallholder selection ensures that while exhibitors are vastly different in almost every way, they all have a common thread; creative talent, a demonstrated integrity in their business ethos and original thought in their design process.

the market is carefully curated by Shannon Robertson & Holly Webber, who are committed in their mission to unearthing and showing off Tasmania’s veritable web of undiscovered talent, world-class products and the intriguing stories and inspiration behind the commercial reality of small scale designers and makers. In addition to their regular market events, the girls have recently hosted pop - up events at the Cancer Council Girls Day Out and at the Sustainable Living Festival. In 2013 they held Show & Tell, a forest-themed night exhibition of their stallholders, as part of the Festival of Voices programme. Alongside co-curating the market, Holly & Shannon both run successful small businesses of their own and bring to the market their skills in graphic design, journalism, advertising, creative writing and marketing. This helps them to provide exhibitors with a platform, valuable exposure and a reach for their products that extends beyond market day.

Demand to know where things come from,what is in them,who has made them and under what conditions. Do not be led only by price but look for value and craftsmanship. Buy only things and materials that respect the human energy that has gone into them and where the maker is rewarded fairly. kevin mccloud Kevin McCloud’s 43 Principles of Home
