editor’s letter

Kelley and Glen - photo by Rachel Manns#findingloveZoe, Kelley and Rebecca with Swamiji at Wanderlust - see page 80 for his wise words on love.Organic makeup artist Emmily Banks and model Dani Bonner behind the scenes of our ethical fashion shoot (page 52).ISSUE 29 AUTUMN 2016As we go to print on this beautiful love-themed issue, it’s most likely no coincidence that I am also madly planning for my wedding in two weeks’ time – I’m a sucker for punishment, clearly – so love is most definitely in the air. And so it would be slightly remiss of me to not be pondering what the big L means to me at this time of my life. Love is such a personal, individual thing – we all experience it on varying levels,…

IT TAKES TWODoes food taste better piled atop elegant stoneware and porcelain tableware that’s been handmade with soul? Brisbane ceramicist Miya Valmadre-McCrae reckons that might just be so. With her label Two Warm Hands, Miya hand-crafts beautifully minimalist kitchenware that includes plates, mugs, jugs and spoons, occasionally embellished with happy little polka dots, stripes or checks. Miya says she’s obsessed with “building practical beauty,” so her pieces are made sturdy enough to withstand the rowdiest of dinner parties. Time to write the invite list.twowarmhands.comendless vacationAh, holidays. Sleep ins, long walks on the beach, hammock hangs and zero responsibilities – that kind of goodness should really never end.

Shortly before her hugely successful design collaboration with Gorman, she founded her own label, Edith Rewa, in 2015.

hope for the futureDavid sure knows how to keep busy. Last year, he published his 52nd book, Letters to my Grandchildren, an inspiring collection of advice about meaningful living alongside anecdotes from his incredible life and career. This March, the same month he turns 80, he’ll appear as part of the WOMADelaide Festival’s Planet Talks program to share insights about how we can make the world a better place. We caught up with David to find out why he’s hopeful about the future and our place in it.What will you be talking about at this year’s WOMADelaide festival?I’ll be talking about the themes in Letters to my Grandchildren and probably reading from a number of passages. It’s an attempt to pass on things I’ve learned in my life that I…
