When I found out I was photographing three Inverell artisans for the Autumn 2016 edition of the New England Home & Lifestyle magazine, I have to say I was super excited. Having a strong appreciation for handmade products, this was one of my ideal jobs.
The Jeweller, Baker and Candlestick-Maker. Casey Lea from Pop Design uses clay as a creative medium to sculpt her simple, but striking jewellery and key rings. Chris Wellard from Wellard's Artisan Bakehouse uses the slow bread making process for his delicious sourdough bread and products. And Bec Devlin from Fig + Elm creates amazing fragrant soy candles.
The love and attention these artisans apply to their craftsmanship is evident in their products. All being sold locally, you can find Wellard's Artisan Bakehouse products at Funki Munki and both Pop Design and Fig + Elm products at me & mr jones.
