As part of Craft Cubed 2013 we have collaborated with  Vanessa Lucas on an interior scenario featuring Vanessa’s new tableware designs in cream porcelain and our all-ply table. The exhibition will be in place from the 4th of August and open our usual hours – Fridays from 10:30 to 3:30 and Saturdays 10 to 2. The exhibition opening afternoon tea is on August the 4th at 2pm, usethings store 8 Templeton St Castlemaine.

We where drawn together by the conviction that handmade things should be useful… and that use and beauty go hand-in-hand.

Vanessa’s work reflects her philosophy that utility is important when working with clay, but the tangibility of function must not be at the expense of beauty.

A maker of bespoke objects for 20 years, Vanessa Lucas trained first in ceramics education and later in clothing design.

In her work with both cloth and clay, her unwavering priority is to make pieces which function seamlessly in everyday life.

Using the same meticulous attention to the balance between the visual and the utilitarian, Vanessa has created a range of delicate slipcast porcelain tableware.

We’ll also have a small display in Clementines window Melbourne CBD from the 17th Aug featuring a scaled version of the All-ply table and Vanessa’s
