Design Made Trade stall which featured
RMIT students who collaborated with
The Johnston Collection on a project
for their gallery gift shop. Products were
designed with patterns inspired by
motif within the johnston collection.
The intent of the project was to bring a younger
crowd to the gallery to appreciate all of
Mr Johnston's beautiful antique collectables.

My product was a Elegant Wheat pack

"As a child simple things become jewels; pebbles,
shells, a feather. They are treasures worth
collecting, contemplating or threading on a string.
The careful handling, and/or play of such objects,
creates not only a deeper understanding, but also
an infinite connection between memory and the
place from which the object came. My work
explores this connection by referencing tiny
objects loaded with meaning. These playful and
evocative creations are the imaginative conclusions
that have trickled out of my studio (once cubby
house) nestled in the hills surrounding the Bega
Valley. They are a place to invest memory, while
simultaneously, invite us to wear, handle and warm
them to life."
