EARTH NOTES OF RAISON & CLAY
The last time we stayed in Coopers Shoot, a fertile spot in Byron Bay's hinterland, we overlooked a tiny holding of coffee bushes clinging to the hill. The unusual name of this place refers to the way timber cutters in the 1800s would ‘shoot’ the cedar logs down hills to the waiting ships. Tragically, this practice was at the expense of the indigenous owners, part of the Bundjalung nation, who were rounded up and forced to live in camps on the outskirts of town. This rich, volcanic earth has now enabled a thriving, cottage industry of growers who seek to enable sustainable farming that improves on the past.
I WANTED TO EVOKE THE RICHNESS OF THE EARTH IN THIS RANGE BY USING DARK RAISON AND SOFT, PINK CLAY. COMBINING BEAUTIFUL TEXTURES OF WOOL AND LINEN WITH HANDCRAFTED TIMBER BUTTONS GIVES THESE PIECES WARMTH AND COMFORT, BRINGING AN ARTISAN QUALITY TO YOUR HOME. GEORGIE, THE MAKER
