What better way to start the year than with a cracking review for one of our customers? Congratulations Albert St! I was lucky enough to eat there twice last week. As Larissa Dubecki notes- ‘Sydney Road begins a new chapter’. Very exciting.
I thought I would share with you my version of a Christmas tree; branches sprayed in white, propped in our large jug and decorated with our vintage baubles and ornaments. I quickly made the mini bunting using pinking shears, red and white fabric and green bias binding. A bit of a cheats version, but I love it! - Kate
Our black and white patty pans have been getting some great press lately. None more beautiful than the Design Sponge post- In the kitchen with: coffee flavoured cake. The styling and photography is so perfect – thanks to Kristina Gill (kristinagill.com). She purchased her patty pans at Wheel and Barrow.

There is so much work involved in making pottery. Pieces are modeled, moulded, cast or pressed, fettled, bisqued, glazed, fired again, decalled and packed ready to go. To give you an idea of what goes on, I thought it might be nice to show you the early stages of production for our lovely pie dish. We have been making this particular dish in Australia for the past 20 years. Production methods have remained the same over this time.
We use locally sourced clay, cut into long square lengths. The exact size used for the pie is measured and cut.
Donny hard at work, cutting the clay.
The clay piece is placed in the die. The male and female parts join, ‘squashing’ the clay to form the shape.
Excess clay is removed. Air releases the piece onto a board, held by Don.
Ready to be placed on a trolley, dried, fettled, bisque fired, glazed, gloss fired…. and finally
sent to you as this-
Spotted in this month’s Inside out is our gorgeous striped patty pans from the LITTLE CIRCUS range. As usual, Inside out is looking absolutely fantastic. They have put together 100 Christmas Gift Ideas, of which our patty pans are lucky number 93. Products are compiled by Phoebe McEvoy and Kate Holcombe.
Spotted on page 95 of the November issue of Masterchef is a very lovely photo of our Australian made Bistro board. Masterchef has used a white one- they also come in a range of 14 different colours. For more details please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
