Redcliffe born or Redcliffe-lured?

Brissy born and Redcliffe raised.

What does your business/job involve?

Redraku is just us two, Barnaby and I both wheel throw, hand build, paint and glaze neo-traditional ceramics for the twenty-18 marketplace. Atm, we are producing lots of coffee mugstogocups with silicone lids and sleeves, yunomi teacups and custom dinnerware for local families. Currently, we are working on prototypes for kombucha jars with taps, fermenting sauerkraut crocks with water well and lid, and other functional kitchen bench pottery. Daily use items with modern forms and feels.

Suburb you live in and why you love it?

Margate Beach and we love it here because at the end of or the start of the day we can wander down to the waterfront and listen to the waves roll in and watch the seabirds glide by, there is nothing more calming. Also, Redcliffe has the best festivals and markets and eating out is a dream here.

How do you unwind?

When taking a day out from the pottery wheel, invoices, stock lists and packaging we find long walks to take and often there’s some sitting and just breathing in nature. Also, a sushi and coffee date at Scarborough overlooking the fishing boats any day of the week sets us straight and invites lots of creative conversations, inspiring new ranges and product developments.

Best coffee haunt in town / best watering hole in town?

Oh Wow, so many choices. Flock’s barristers do a kick butt morning brew and for a midday pick up a cold coffee and apple tart from Neli Coffee is the perfect combo. Once the weather cools off I often duck into Soul Harvest Wholefoods in Margate for a tumeric latte, so warming and super good for you.
