Fresh country air has a certain magical quality – It clears the mind and makes you appreciate the simple things life. This is clearly the case for Andrea Shaw, who after moving to the Bendigo in country Victoria, launched her new business, Stampel. Armed with a chisel, an obsession for wood block printing and eye for pattern, she carves recycled timber offcuts into delicate design objects that pack a design punch. We particularly love her little Fasett Flower Vessel….
Each vessel is finished with plant based eco wood oil and the cavity lined with beeswax to hold a drop of water to sustain a small floral stem from the garden.
Andrea also makes a very smart timber jewellery range, and turns her hand to macrame too! Her store is well worth a visit – Just wait until you see her wall mounted jewellery stands….but that could be a whole new blog post!
