Craft: Tasmanian Talents

July 17, 2007


Crafter of creepiness, Catherine Badcock makes plush toys with mayhem on their minds. Each unique manifestation of evil is handmade and embellished with felt bones and meat chunks! A no-no for the nursery but a must for the mantle piece  – these are adorably threatening. To see more pics visit Cat’s site

Tasmanian Natalie Holstbaum is a jeweller who makes the everyday extraodinary. This brooch is an example of her use of recycled materials  – lino and carpet in this case –  to make her beautiful pieces. To see more of her work online have a Bo Peep at her website

Yo check out the colour spectrum! What a hot Rainbow!!!! I was lucky enough to catch this curvy on my recent trip to Tasmania. This photo was taken in the historic Battery Point district and my, didn’t Mother Nature make a postcard out of the scene for me when I went ot have a look! 

I was on an Art and Craft Odyssey, checking out the terrific work of local talents working around Tasmania and saw some beautiful work. I’ll be posting links and pics of what I saw very soon!
