    Insert Coin Here


    Insert Coin Here, is a group exhibition curated by Nella Themelios and Kim Brockett that is part of the 2010 L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival cultural program.

    Comprising vending machines strategically placed around the Melbourne CBD, Insert Coin Here explores hierarchies of value and mechanised systems of exchange.

    The Insert Coin Here vending machines contain limited edition 'fashion objects' which are randomly dispensed when a member of the public inserts a $2 coin. The artworks contained in the machines have been produced by over 60 Melbourne-based artists, designers and craft practitioners.

    a lickle baby bird ......


    Things have been pretty busy round here recently...mostly because I've become a very happy Mama Bird, to our divine baby girl, Quincy, who is 10 weeks old today.

    Quincy was born, at home, with the early sounds of the dawn chorus to greet her, on October 5th. She is the best thing since sliced bread and we love her to bits. :)

    Over the years lots of you have requested a baby bird range...and now then, don't get too excited, are you still keen as mustard?.....our very own little poppet looks so cute in her homemade baby bird we thought you might like some too.

    If you would, then please email info@birdtextile.com marked in the subject 'we love baby bird', with any comments, special requests, or feedback on a baby bird range. No promises as yet, but we will see.....

    Wallpaper Mandala

    For those of you who missed out seeing this beautiful collaborative series the “Wallpaper Mandala” in 2010, a collection by body artist and photographer Emma Hack, and the team at Signature Prints, using Florence Broadhursts original designs.

    Emma is a fine artist who has seamlessly applied her art to the body as a skin illustrator. In this series, painted nudes stand in front of Broadhurst wallpapers, the artwork flowing seamlessly between the two as if drawn by the same hand.

    Here’s a look at  some of my favourites.... along with a fascinating short behind the scenes documentary video showing Emma at work, and interviews with David and Helen Lennie from Signature Prints studios in Sydney.

    Just gorgeous.  A match made in heaven.
