The Forest floor collection

Backs against pine-needled carpets, our eyes found gaps between the canopy. The sky appeared to be falling lazily towards us, cascading through an inky blue infinity.

 

An old friend · Our first project

Early one morning I received a phone call from a dear friend I have known since High School -  Tuli Keidar. Tuli and I spent a lot of time seeing gigs and running around festivals, until I left Australia and he left too. A few years ago, when I returned to Australia and began working in the coffee industry, I found out that Tuli was roasting for Sydney's highly respected speciality roaster: MECCA.
We don't get to see each other often due to our schedules and the suburbs we reside in, so it's always nice to hear from him. On this occasion, it wasn't catching up but a request for me to paint some artwork for a limited edition coffee blend he was working on. We met up a few days later for a surf and talked over some ideas - I shared this with Maya and our brains went into overdrive. This was the catalyst for the Forest Floor Collection and our first project. 

 
 

The Forest Floor

Backs against pine-needled carpets, our eyes found gaps between the canopy. The sky appeared to be falling lazily towards us, cascading through an inky blue infinity.

The Forest Floor tumblers are made from a light brown clay body infused with small iron freckles. The black tenmoku glaze shimmers copper brown where the iron has burst through with layer of sky blue falling delicately over the side.

 
 
 
 
 
 

The Forest Floor

Stars fall lazily over a forest of slash pines. Out here is completely different to in there where pine needles blanket the forest floor. Moments spent gazing at the stars through the tree tops is a life away for today, though the memory of the canopy greeting the sky remains.
