HEART OF THE HOME I absolutely adore cooking. It’s how I relax, get creative and spoil my loved ones. And, while my kitchen is lovely, truth be told I’d really like to redo it. More benchspace, a bigger oven, a Frenchdoor fridge! I can spend hours drawing up plans and making Pinterest boards of my dream space, so it was a joy, this issue, to curate some of the most beautiful kitchens we’ve seen lately. Each one has its own brilliant ideas. For example, pocket doors you know, the doors that slide into a recess. I love how they can be used to separate or open up zones within a room, for example, a butler’s pantry or a sneaky bar off the kitchen. Then there’s the materials palette. Timber? Stone?

A THWARTED PLAN TO BECOME A FURNITURE MAKER LED ELISA BARTELS TO START HER ARTISAN CERAMIC HOMEWARES AND SCULPTURE BUSINESS IN SYDNEY How was Elisa Bartels Designs born? Elisa: “I wanted to be a furniture maker, but discovered the best place to do so was Tasmania – but we couldn’t move there. Furniture-making combines art and functionality, and I found these same qualities in ceramics.” What makes your products special? “I don’t glaze my work, I use saggar firing: I put my work in tins with organic material, such as sawdust, seaweed, a mix of leaves, snakeskin and feathers, and the carbon released from the organic matter colours the clay.” Do you have a personal favourite from your own range? “My dinner plate. It takes a piece of Vegemite toast to Master Chef levels!” What’s next for…
