A Pot About A Teardrop

Nicollete Johnson

Brisbane-based ceramicist Nicolette Johnson’s work draws on traditional pottery techniques which span millennia. Her forms marry the organic and the handmade, echoing botanical symmetry and patterns found in the natural world. This new collection, entitled “Assemblages” are Johnson’s playful response to isolation. The glazed stoneware vessel is branded with what appears to be animate symbols that gives it its’ ethereal appearance. The artist is currently represented by the Sophie Gannon Gallery in Melbourne, Australia. Available on

Portable Gople Lamp


The basic form of the Gople Lamp enhances the beauty of glass which is hand-processed according to an ancient Venetian blowing technique that gradually turns white glass into crystal by combining the two – making each piece unique. The lamp is then completed by using a range of innovative finishes. The growing Gope family now has a new version that is portable, and offers a 26-hour running time without electricity, making it the perfect lamp to carry from indoor to outdoor settings to create just the right amount of ambiance.
