The first deer were introduced to Australia in 1803. We take our name from this date. My family has sustainably and ethically farmed red deer on rolling pastures near beautiful Orange, central NSW for over 32 years. 1803 is committed to the nose-to-tail philosophy and a spirit of collaboration, as we work with extremely talented Australian artisans to use the antlers and hides from our family deer farm. Together we make premium products that are authentic, natural and sophisticated. In everything we make there’s an integrity that we are really proud of.
Ange Winter creates tactile pieces of art to be worn and treasured. Working from her rustic studio on the Mornington Peninsula, Ange turns silver, shell, beach glass and driftwood into organically inspired jewellery that evokes a walk on the beach or a wander down a secret bush track. Studies in Fine Art (Gold and Silversmithing) at Monash University became a platform for Ange to explore ways to incorporate nature into jewellery resulting in softly sculpted rings, necklaces, pendants and earrings: robust mini-sculptures that are beautiful to touch and comfortable to wear. Ange’s jewellery is for those who pocket shells and glass during beach trips and those who like to carry a little nature with them wherever they might go. Each item is unique, evocative and lovingly handmade.
It seems the regional art community loves Antonia Throsby's work as much as we do. She won the 2012 Bowral Sculpture Prize, was selected in the 2012 Outback Open Art Prize at Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery and was named one of five Emerging Artists at Sidney Myer Fund Australian Ceramics Awards. Antonia has also just been awarded the Trudie Alfred Scholarship in Australia. Antonia began working with clay ten years ago when she did her first ceramics course at Goulbourn TAFE. She now creates her one-of-a-kind pendant lampshades from her home studio, 3km outside of Braidwood. Her products are slip caste in terracotta and a white gloss glaze is used for contrast. Her pendant lights are beautifully translucent when lit. When Antonia is not busy crafting her masterpieces, chances are she's spending time with her talented husband, artist Jonothon Throsby, who is also an artist, and her nine-year-old son, or tending to her garden or the family's animals which include chooks, dogs, budgies, a...

Cut from the base round of French barriques or hogs heads, each barrel top bears the brand of a cooperage which created it along with hat of the winery which used the barrel to make wine.
