Sunset over the Heavitree Range Letting steeds take to the beach in Margaret River The weird and wonderful world of the Great Barrier Reef Drive the coast all the way from Cape York to Melbourne. AS WE WEAVE OUR WAY through life so many things along the way evolve and change, so why would the way we travel and the things we want to see be any different? Like so many before me, I did the rite of passage journey to live and work on the other side of the world, with all my worldly belongings shoved into a bulging backpack, and while I loved every minute of it, I can’t see myself travelling in quite that way again. I suspect the next backpack I…

Land and sea collide, merging in a swirling storm of colour like inks dropped into water. The aerial view of this dramatic slice of Victoria’s south coast is the result of a daring expedition, in partnership with Canon, by two photographers, Denis Glennon and Tony Hewitt. They set out to chart Australia’s vast and varied coastline, an epic 31-day journey by plane. “I knew that only a privileged few had explored Australia’s breathtaking coastline to any significant degree from the air,” says Hewitt. “So, I got to wondering what an adventure it would be to experience all of it in one go; to capture and reveal its magical, ever-changing beauty.” The results were on display at the recent Sydney exhibition Girt by Sea, which will appear in capital cities…

WHERE DID THE INSPIRATION FOR REUSABLE CERAMIC CUPS COME FROM? My partner and I both work in the hospitality industry and had an insight into how many single-use coffee cups were used in a day. We were appalled as to how many are wasted and turned into landfill; over one billion disposable coffee cups are used every year in Australia alone. That is when The Ceramic Mill was conceived. We wanted to create a handmade reusable ceramic cup that was not only practical and visually appealing, but something that could make a positive impact on the planet. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN MAKING CERAMICS? We’ve only been doing pottery for roughly two years. We’re still fairly new at this, there is still so much to learn! WHAT FEEDBACK…
