bring on the flowers & fun

Change is as good as a holiday, or so they say. And when it comes to seasons, I think the beginning of spring is exactly that. There’s a definite sense of excitement in the air, and it’s not just because my favourite flowers are momentarily affordable.

Assorted cement pots DESIGNERS: Becc and Maddie Sharrock of Studio Twocan Looking at the whimsical and wonderful designs produced by Melbourne sisters Maddie (pictured left), an artist, and Becc, a graphic designer, it may come as a surprise that the pots are made of cement. The sorbet-toned pieces featuring splices, swatches and swirls of colour take humble cement into an entirely new realm once the sisters have finished. “During production, we layer each colour to create an organic feel,” says Maddie. Once the pots have taken shape via moulds, each piece is then polished with sealers, which leaves that final sparkle. “It’s our intention to emulate the earth’s natural beauty, referencing aerial views and cross sections of the Australian landscape,” says Becc.
