Dayle Green’s work is based around a personal narrative, derived from her love of old objects and involving childhood memories and family nostalgia. A collection of buttons that belonged to her Grandmother directly informs her creativity.
“I feel the old and found tells a story and the ‘button’ is a catalyst for memories that have personal meaning and sentiment. The making process involves handbuilding each piece individually and thoughtfully glazing each piece with a palette of chosen colours. A collection of closed button pieces, vases and spoons echo a subtle feeling of nostalgia. ”

Cath Ray’s books are beautifully made with lovely details such as ribbon bookmarks and map inserts. We especially like her hand written tags which reveal exactly where the book materials originate, revealing Cath’s resourceful imagination!
Each book is unique, designed to be used and kept for a lifetime and with this in mind, Cath uses simple and traditional methods of bookbinding, meaning the beauty and appeal of each book will increase with time.
