i'm still around... just somewhere else as well...

hello there...

so... it is no surprise to many that instagram is a big part of the social media world now... and i am yet to really embrace twitter (never say never i suppose)...
and facebook is still a possibility (but when i don't know) and in some ways, much as many who say "you've just GOT TO have facebook if you are running a business", i'm just bucking the trend and pressure for now... watch this space... as things can always change... that is what we have to remember... 
things can change...

i will be back here from time to time i PROMISE !!!
but thought i'd give you the clear link to my instagram account so you can view online 
if you aren't in the phone world of instagram

i spend a lot of time there...
as the days and weeks of my work life have gotten busier (than i ever knew possible) with the shop, gallery, wholesale, and online, as well as new projects and adventures around every turn...

i find the small, creative, connected instagram world allows me to send little moments and stories and corners of my world quickly and beautifully...
and quietly in a way...

if you would like to keep up with a more regular collection of my adventures, work, and moments both big and small... i share some of them anyway... over on instagram...

love kylie

this weekend we open our first group show in the gallery...
it is one i've had my heart set on since i opened the doors (even before i had a gallery space really)

based around my poem
'in my hand i had a kingdom, in my hand i had yours'
i have asked 14 artists to create work that is able to fit in a hand...

featuring work by all the artists listed above
it is overwhelming the work that is arriving here, it is all so beautiful and thoughtful

work from local and interstate artists will sit along work from japan also...

earlier this year i met momoko and tetsuya otani when visiting japan,

momoko and tetsuya are having a show here in the gallery of their work next year
this current show is a nice way to see their work first hand and get a taste for the larger show in 2014...

in the mean time i hope you can make it along to see some
work of the artists shown...

the show will be open until saturday august 10th
opening hours
wednesday - friday 10-4
and saturdays 10-2

love kylie

these days . . . .

hello friends

can you believe it is march already (and nearly the end in fact) ????
the seasons are changing and the days are getting cooler (almost)
there's so much going on at pbp HQ i don't know where to start...

this week we have finished our lovely collaboration with my dear friend pia
for the release of her new book (released this coming month)
we are thrilled to be selling her book in store shortly
thank you to all of those who pledged to bring her book to light...
above is a sneak peek of how the bowls look (all 40 were sold in the pledge process!)

we have a few other collaborations and commissions on the go too...
one with the sydney writers festival (which is mighty exciting and an honour to boot!)

and we are creating a special new range for the exhibition shop for the queensland art gallery exhibition Quilts 1700-1945 which is coming from the V&A in june...
we will be sure to share with you all our adventures on these commissions in the coming months !

we have just wrapped up the first show in our gallery.

it was such a joy to showcase the work of jennifer orland, to celebrate with her, and to share her work with our lovely customers !

below are some photos from the show... we still have a small collection of jenny's work for sale in the shop if you missed out...

we also have some lovely new work coming through soon, including cake decorating plaques
and cork board pins, and as soon as i can i'll give you a sneak peek of this years christmas range...

i am heading to japan next week for a much needed holiday (and a business trip too) with my sister.
we are going to meet a wonderful potter who is having a show of her and her husbands work in the gallery (which i am most excited about)...

AND we are also meeting with a company who makes timber stationery items including sticky tape dispensers (they have their own renewable forest in the mountains of japan) so there'll be lots of new and exciting things to share on my return...

in the meantime the studio will tick on as usual with my fabulous band of beautiful girls !
and teresa and sarah will be holding down the shop fort... they really are the best shop girls EVER !
please note we will be CLOSED OVER THE EASTER WEEKEND

have a great easter and i'll be back soon with stories to tell and news to share...
