thedesignfiles Flashback to the start of our partnership with @robertgordonaustralia - this plate, made by @kateygordon over 6 months ago (!!) was the starting point for our #thesereneseries tableware collaboration for #TDFopenhouse ! After many subsequent meetings, emails , phonecalls and endless experimentation, the full range of plates and vases was developed. Exquisite !!! 19h

thedesignfiles So so excited to announce a very special collab I've been keeping under my hat !! This beautiful range of vases and plates is The Serene Series, an exclusive collaboration with @robertgordonaustralia , especially for #TDFopenhouse !! I worked closely with amazing @kateygordon and her team to come up with the look and feel of this range (although they did all the hard work - mould making, endlessly experimenting with various glazing methods and producing the finished designs!). I am THRILLED with the results, and hope you all love them as much as we do! many more beautiful pics of the collaboration process by @seanfennessy up on TDF today. #thesereneseries 2d
  •   thedesignfiles Hi @so_quietly @fablihareza @helenaobermair @theflowerera thanks for your comments. As mentioned in the comments above, we have been developing this series for over 6 months, using a glazing method Robert Gordon have been using for over 6 years in production. We have only recently been introduced to Milly's work and though we do notice some similarities in colour, we certainly had no knowledge of her practice back in June when we started developing this range. Her distinctive faceted forms are very different to ours, we have made large 'urn' shaped moulds for our vases, and dining plates / platters, neither of which Milly makes. Being based in Melbourne, we worked with a local manufacturer on this range. That said, we LOVE Milly's work and in fact recently commissioned a Sydney photographer to shoot her studio for an upcoming feature on TDF later in December. No one does more to support Australian creatives than we do! 19h

  •   thedesignfiles Oh sorry @brideandwolfe ! 4d
  •   leetranlam Whoa, thank you for the incredibly lovely shout-out! It's such a huge pleasure to get behind your great projects, Lucy! The way you always set higher limits for yourself - and then totally smash through them is a total inspiration! Can't believe you're basically building a place from scratch this year; wish I could teleport to Melbourne to see it in person, but will have to live vicariously through all the amazing Instagrams. Lots of luck and can't wait to see all the great results as they appear on my feed (filtered or not)! 4d
  •   leetranlam Thank you, @theprojectagency - always amazing to work with and always too kind! 4d

thedesignfiles Every year over 5000 people visit #TDFopenhouse , which is why THIS YEAR we've decided it's time to harness your support for a good cause. We're asking each visitor to Open House for a gold coin donation for the @asrc1 ! The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Melbourne do the most incredible work supporting asylum seekers and refugees in our community, providing housing, food, legal aid and vital services to those desperately in need, right here in Melbourne. They receive no government funding at all. If every visitor to Open House pops $2.00 in one of these collection buckets , we will raise $10,000 for the ASRC Christmas appeal! Let's do it! thanks to @natturnbull and @anothergemma for making our collection buckets. X 7d
