The Decorated Self. . . . . . . . Kate Durham

It may have been a little while between exhibitions for the delightful and talented Kate Durham but she has returned with a tour de force showcasing her signature bower bird style of collection and embellishment.  With a prolific offering of dazzling wearable wonders, many a happy attendee were able to score a souvenir for their adoration.  There is a fantastic little broach heading to the Castle collection.

This one is Bound for the Castle.

If you wish to score your own wondrous piece from Kate, get in quick to our favourite gallery, Fortyfivedownstairs.

The exhibition will run until October 11th 2014
45 Flinders Lane Melbourne.

The Great Indian Cook Off.

The other weekend we left our comfort zone of St Kilda for a mystery date with Ms Susie Wicks way out in the wild west of Footscray.  We found ourselves at the Raw Materials studio for the Great Indian Cook Off, a fun and frenzied affair, with several Indian Ex-Master Chef contestants as hosts and four teams of four battling it out for supremacy on the hotplate.  With a big dash of Bollywood and a curry feast to finish the show, it was a jolly good day out with our cousins from the sub-continent.


Master Chefs- Rishi, Natasha & Faiza.

Natasha, Ms Wicks, Rishi, Mr Brown & Sir Geyer.
