From a brief in March 2014 to the design, development, production and delivery of the first five units last Thursday for Friday’s Foundation event – a wonderful journey and delightful partnering with the Queensland Art Gallery. The presentation package was designed and realised in vector art by the studio and was then effectively produced in Queensland red cedar and perspex, inhouse at the Gallery while we worked with our fabricators (Gold Coast & Sydney & Brisbane) and finished the medals and ribbons in the studio. There were many photographs taken at hand over and an article will appear in the Foundation’s magazine in the near future, here is my shot of Barbara taken on the iPhone in the water pavilion.
The questions were: 1) do we make silver fitted caps for each tusk? . . . and they sell them as objects. 2) do we endeavour to make them into wearable bracelets? 3) if so how to make them both fit her slender slim wrists? 4) There will have to be lots of metal, Silver or Rose Gold? 5) how to best show off the patina and growth lines of the tusks?
Barbara, Juan-Luis, mal E, Vanessa and Michael played with the options . . . sometimes they we were all in accord, ideas were lobbed into the mix like wild-fire – two meetings then the solution was drawn up, costed a few ways and accepted in a few minutes.

Feedback from Vanessa Roche, via iPhone messaging: “Nancy Cunard photographed by Man Ray, she is fun to google . . . Thanks again for the bracelets, they are just perfect! I might try to build up to this look”. The image sent was too small to post – our Nancy Cunard image comes from the Jewellery to the Lost library ‘ Costume Jewellery in Vogue’ by Jane Mulvagh.
The old logo (above) and location has worked a treat, so much so that it is now almost 20 years since I introduced Philip Johnson to Robert Riddel and their relationship – like the restaurant has endured so well. We are in for the VIP re-launch, their invite (below) launches the new logo and this new phase in Brisbane dining pleasure! Bookings via the web.
