Indoors

Interview: Benjamin Baldwin

September

The Slowpoke: BENJAMIN BALDWIN // Photo by: Hilary Walker Benjamin Baldwin is a man who opts for time honoured methods over modern shortcuts. He finds beauty in every join and detail and the time and skills required to get there. And as a maker who works only with recycled materials (and machinery!) he knows the value of a decent piece of otherwise discarded timber better than many.

Interview: Elke Lucas Ceramics

August

The Slowpoke: ELKE LUCAS CERAMICS // Photo by Lillie Thompson Marrying into a family of potters, it’d be hard not to be influenced with dreams of working with clay. Likewise, residing in the peaceful surrounds of NSW’s Sunshine Coast it’s almost a given to let nature take it’s due course as an influence over creative work. It’s these paths that have led to the natural and minimal ceramics of Elke Lucas.

CLAY FOR NEPAL

May

The Slowpoke: CLAY FOR NEPAL Whether it has happened to a small town, a region, a state or country, there’s nothing to like about a natural disaster. One thing that does result from such devastation though, time and again, is the ability of people to gather together, as communities both near and far rally together to do what they can to help.

MACRAME PLANT HANGER

January

On a mission to bring a little more plant life indoors this year? Good job. The benefits of indoor plants is well-known – a little greenery is great for removing toxins from the air and improving our mental and physical wellbeing. And one rather lovely and simple way to bring some life indoors is by hanging your plants with a little crafty macramé.

WIN AN ARMADILLO + CO RUG

January

The Slowpoke: WIN AN ARMADILLO + CO RUG Who could say no to an ethical, handcrafted, and sustainable soft hemp creation gracing their floor? We said hello to Armadillo & Co, the masters of these in-demand carpets on The Slowpoke a little while ago. They have an awe-inspiring array of rugs crafted of natural materials – jute, hemp, cotton and wool – and handmade by a team of dyers and weavers in India they work incredibly closely with.
