SMALL BEGINNINGS

 

From our tiny workshop on the Sunshine Coast, our first product is the Craftwood Pendant - 100% Australian made, individually carved from ethically sourced Australian hardwood, and offered in a beautiful presentation package.

 

This is just a very small beginning for us. In time, and once we are able to keep up with initial demand, other products will surely follow - including earrings, cufflinks, and brooches etc. So watch this space!

 

 

 

 

STYLES SO FAR 

 

With every piece of timber being so unique, and because the styles we carve are always evolving and changing, this means no two pendants are ever the same. However, several main style sets have taken shape, already forming three quite distinct ranges -

 

 

AUSTRALIANA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This range captures iconic Aussie motifs in a way that lifts them out of their typical prosaic context, and seeks to elevate them to another level again. It's not easy making art out of kangaroos and boomerangs! But with repetition and symmetry forming a kind of fabric pattern, and with the application on a curved form, the result is intended to be a seamless and refined gift, speaking of Australia through and through. 

 

 

LICHTENBURG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Named for the person who first discovered and recorded the phenomenon, a Lichtenburg Figure is the product of electrical current at very high voltage, as it passes through a conductive substrate.

 

In order to produce each original carving, we wet the surface with an electrolyte and then apply the current very carefully, with the result every time being a completely unique and fractal like formation.

 

From these designs came the name of our brand - Lightning Tree. 

 

It is possible to do this entirely safely, but it does require significant care and preparation, and a great deal of practice. 

 

Kids - Do not try this at home!

 

 

TURTLE VISION 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Applying the visionary work of our resident artist - Tommy Simons - brings us our feature range: Turtle Vision.

 

The endless organic flow, and a natural connection to the Earth, infuses this range with the feel of a found object, and a timeless dreamlike continuity. This range will develop continually as new designs become available over time.

FILAGREE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Naturally suited to the medium, classical filigree styles are being explored in many different scales and forms - in a continuous evolution of expression. Timeless and universal.

 

 

SUGGEST A STYLE

 

Our artists are free to put just about any image they like on a pendant, except for promotional material or logos etc. And while we can't promise that any particular idea will ever make it into production, if you have an idea for a style you would like to see emerge, you can always make a suggestion. Just send a small black and white image here, and if your idea makes it into our range, you will receive a free pendant.
