on the fringe
The Fringe Festival has officially started and there are always some interesting visual treats for craft and design people around town. We are off to Fringe Furniture later in the week (an obvious and regular choice) but we thought we'd let you know about two interesting shows on around town as part of the festival.
The first being Art of the Cuff at Lord Coconut. The bespoke menswear boutique provided a select group of 60 artists, jewellers and designers a French cuff to customise and if last year's version is anything to go by the results will undoubtedly be tres chic.
The Lyrical Earth Vixens has to be the worst name for a ceramics collective we've ever heard but we are willing to cross the river to Carbon Black Gallery in Prahran to see what it's all about. It's important to see what artists to with a craft medium and also how crafters deal with an art practice.
We have had a sneak peak at the work of one 'earth vixen' in Craft Victoria's annual Breakfast Club exhibition last month, which we have to say was pretty cool, so we're keen to have a look at the rest and let you know. If you go maybe you could let US know! We wish there was more craft as part of Fringe. What can we do to fix that? RAMONA & BECK
