Our Melbourne winter blues might be coming to an end, but we are still captivated by the totally gorgeous blue hues of Nomad Object Co.'s new tableware range. We have been waiting in anticipation for this collection to arrive all winter, and now that it has made it into our store we are not disappointed.
Brooke first met Lyndon Sendeckyj from Nomad Object Co. when they studied ceramics together at Holmesglen Tafe, and then went on to share a workspace together in North Melbourne at Elm Place Studios. Since then, Lyndon has moved into his own workshop in Thornbury and his ceramic practice has developed into creating unique tableware collections and exhibition pieces for which he uses a range of throwing and handbuilding techniques.
All pieces from Nomad Object Co.'s tableware range at Guild are made from various reclaimed clays. Pale clays are mixed together with rich, dark iron bearing clays to create unique surfaces for the deep pooling blue glaze that changes on each different clay mixture. Relish boats, tea plates, cups and bowls – no two items are the same.
We are also very proud to be the exclusive stockist of handmade copper spoons and cheese knives by Melbourne metalsmith Kat Relish. Again, each of Kat's pieces are handmade and entirely unique, with twisted handles, flattened arrowhead details and decorative enamelling.
Paired together, the colour and texture of the ceramic tableware with the copper utensils is so rich and luscious. Perfect for chunky homemade sauces, jams and relishes, served with cheese, warm bread and hot cups of tea.
