One of our first featured artisan producers, The Urban Beehive.
The Urban Beehive is driven by two beekeepers, Doug Purdie and Vicky Brown, who met through the NSW Beekeepers Association and decided things were getting serious with bees.
The Urban Beehive started in 2010 with the aim of supporting the honeybees that do their critically important work in urban Sydney.
“We put beehives in city backyards, community gardens and on rooftops; from Bondi to Marrickville – even the Botanic Gardens and Centennial Park. Across Sydney, the bees are enjoying some great views! And our hives are happy and healthy”
Internationally, bees are in drastic decline, with whole populations being destroyed overnight as a result of introduced threats. The Urban Beehive are here to help protect local bee populations against these threats; and to raise awareness of the plight of all our beneficial insects. This is partly through education with their popular beekeeping courses in The Centennial Parklands, plenty of public speaking and now a beekeeping shop in Mascot, Sydney where you can buy all your beekeeping needs in one place..
Support local, buy honey. Proudly supported by Henry Lee’s.
Studio Enti is the design practice of ceramicist Naomi Taplin, producing porcelain tableware, lighting and home decor. Naomi formed Studio Enti in 2013 after completing a Bachelor of Design at the College of Fine Arts, UNSW.
Each unique piece of handmade porcelain is made to be used and enjoyed. A strong belief in the necessity of good design and concepts of longevity and sustainability are the major driving forces behind the work of Studio Enti. Naomi believes that in order for products to be valued and to fulfill their destiny through use, they need to cleverly cross boundaries of function and beauty, and have imbedded within them an inherent worth and respect for the materials and processes that they are created from.
