Honeywill holiday snapshot – nice, no Milano . . . Wednesday, Aug 6 2014 

From memory this is the first © Bh ring John commissioned for Trish. From viewing John’s Italian holiday pics, this is only one of many chairs lined up at the Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan for viewing Italian masters’ works. I wonder if any small pieces of antique terracotta managed to become stuck in her sandals? We might have another commission, then?

Barbara Heath – mid year Studio Soiree – this Saturday August 9 2014 for one day only Wednesday, Aug 6 2014 

We are about to consign new stock to three retailers after the successful QAG|GoMA mid year design market. All remaining & new stock is at studio wholesale for one day this Saturday 10:00am–4:00pm. For out-of-towners, send me an email <male@co-opones.to> with your wish list, address details and we can send pics and prices. We sell and dispatch all over the world successfully.

The other studio surprise is the rotation of paintings after 15 years, Barbara’s new work by ‘skull kapt’ has replaced Nick Cominos’ ‘red scape’ which is now behind malE’s workstation. The French cabinet will be filled with gem and jewellery stock, we have never done this mid year before so be brave because the bold ones will be on the doorstep way before ten am . . . commission clients will already know the address.

 

GoMA Store Winter Market, Saturday July 19 2014 ova and out Tuesday, Jul 22 2014 

Two days before this event I went under to have x12 sun cancers cut out of hands, neck and face and missed the fun and excitement. David Patterson helped with the bump-in, Elizabeth (Lil) supported Barb until 1:00 and K.T. Doyle did the afternoon session until 4:00 – then Karl assisted with the bump-out. For the first time I didn’t manage to post an email spread or a blog post and have received a few complaints . . . sorry folks! I also didn’t realise just how much I actually do to get the show on the road. Great customer feedback and terrific sales + some FB posts from supporters.

We repaired the Honeywill’s ‘hausgeister’ recently and this is the installation update photograph, just received Thursday, Apr 17 2014 

 

This unit is from our sold out, first show at Artisan where we showed ‘Tinsmith: An Ordinary Romance” in 2010. Regarding these small spirit guards that we have been asked to make on numerous occasions, the key as we understand it, is to place a mirror within the small architectural device. Spirits, we are told are such curious fellows and can’t resist a small interesting shelter but when one of them sees himself reflected in the mirror, he is sure to behold an ugly terrifying image and quickly goes elsewhere – thus rendering the abode safe and sound. Russian and German folklore is full of such stories that stray into the supernatural but we don’t believe in ghosts, do we?

Apologies to our own Brisbane on-line ‘thefashionarchives’ . . . we were featured in issue 4 and I have only updated both our c.v.’s to reflect this Thursday, Mar 13 2014 

Number #10 is the recent issue so I’m terribly late with this update, sorry girls!

Our 6 column story entitled ‘pieced together’ is here

and my own Fashion Q & A is here

Today I have posted major updates to our ‘pages’ column Tuesday, Mar 11 2014 

The commission list and CV .pdfs and the downloadable commission reports for the recent year’s activities, as .pptxs might be too much for you iPhone users but the full screen does them justice – enjoy + feedback welcome.

. . . a Jeweller-to-the-Lost selfie by Lil Enright with Barbara Heath Wednesday, Mar 5 2014 

The second studio sale day in a rare moment when there were no clients in the studio. I had this shot as my wallpaper on the iPhone all the time we were on holidays – we have spent two months at our other residence, shop and garden in Tunbridge Tasmania. We returned to the studio yesterday and this is the first post for 2014, yeah!

Last day of preparation for the studio sale this weekend, but commissions are still being completed and email sales happen right up to the end Friday, Dec 6 2013 

The ‘Sydney Lady’ has always loved Barbara’s own ring she made for her 55th birthday. When V was here recently she saw this basket quatrefoil in the stage of development and asked for first dibs on it as it was a range make. Having already tried on Barbara’s ring, (A) she discussed at length this new ring (B). V went on to commission other things, so when this was completed yesterday I scanned and prepared the ring for inclusion in the sale. Once I had costed and labeled it Barbara piped up and said I should send the pics and the price to V in Sydney . . . that put and end to anyone else buying it tomorrow. Here are three shots of both rings I quickly snapped on Barbara’s hand.
