A Garden Of Native and Exotic Plants On The Mornington Peninsula

Thanks to a chance encounter between two plant-lovers, we have the privilege to share a very special garden today!

Inside The Sunny Garden Shed Studio Of An merging Ceramic Artist

Every year since 1993, Craft Victoria has held Fresh! – an exhibition of graduate makers from across the state. Spanning craft, design and fine art disciplines, Fresh! is an important annual showcase of the newest class of Victorian makers.

Artist Anni Hagberg exhibited her graduate collection of porcelain pieces, titled ‘Integrity’, in last year’s show. Constructed from discarded metals coated in speckles of gold lustre, the body of ceramic works scored her both The Design Files Emerging Maker Award and The John Wardle Architects Craft Prize!

We visited Anni at her sunny backyard studio in Yarraville to hear more about her blossoming practice.

Tasmania’s Derwent Valley with Rodney Dunn – The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

For our travel column this month we’ve jetted off to Tasmania!

Our tour guide for this brief-but-utterly-beautiful getaway is Rodney Dunn of The Agrarian Kitchen, a sustainable farm-based cooking school. The Sydneysider-turned-Tasmanian worked in the food magazine industry, as a food researcher for Better Homes and Gardens, and was a food editor of Gourmet Traveller up until his treechange in 2007.

Rodney treated our photographer Caitlin Mills to his acclaimed Cooking with Truffles Masterclass, and a trip to some favourite spots around the Derwent Valley, in the south-east region of Tasmania.
