Sydneysiders have been lucky enough to have experienced a multitude of exhibitions of contemporary metalsmiths, jewellers and object designers at Surry Hills studio-gallery Metalab over the last few years. Metalab was opened in 2004 by ANU School of Art graduate Cesar Cueva (above centre and right). Now, their sister store Courtesy of the Artist is about to reach it’s two year anniversary.

Courtesy stocks a wide range of contemporary wearables and objects from many Australian and international designers and artists like Cinnamon Lee, Mark Vaarwerk, Vanessa Samuels (above left) and F!NK. The vivacous Nina Cueva, owner of the store, hand picks the objects and artists. Nina’s vast amount of experience and craft knowledge ensures her range is not only fresh and innovative, but of superior handmade quality.

Courtesy is located at 547 Bourke St, Surry Hills, NSW. Definitely one for the inner-city-gallery crawl. 🙂

  

If you:

a) Are in need of some designer-ly training in complex pattern-drafting
b) Can’t sit down without doing something with your hands
c) have an excess of glue and time

then you should be papercrafting. Yup, it’s the original print-it-out-and-waste-some-time craft.

(The next post will be more cerebral, I promise…)
