Evie Cahir is an illustrator currently living and drawing in West Melbourne.
Her work jumps back and forth between carefully rendered watercolor still lives and loosely drawn portraits of cartoon characters—often the two collide, sharing space on in the same ‘brain dump’ or ‘snack pack’. She also does some very cute dog portraits.

Artist Tamara Orjola grew up in Latvia and attended the Design Academy in Eindhoven, NL.
Her series “Forest Wool” explores constructive uses for the pine needles left over from the European timber industry. With standard manufacturing techniques – crushing, soaking, steaming, carding, binding and pressing – they can be transformed into textiles, composites and paper, extracting essential oil and dye in the process. An elegant series of stools and carpets made of nothing but pine needles, shows that this ecological material also has a high-quality look and feel to it.
The carafes from her series “8/9/89″ are designed to be easily useable by individuals with osteoporosis or arthritis, while remaining aesthetically elegant.
“Inbetween” is a tea set which consists of 5 layers. Each layer has a different shape and function but they all belong to the same ritual and can be reunited together in one composition. It’s form was inspired by the onion, who’s innermost layer is an entirely different shape than the outermost, yet all fit together seamlessly.

“A fibrous alchemist of sorts, Stephanie Hare is a papermaker exploring the techniques and nuances of the Kozo fiber, a bark harvested from the Paper Mulberry tree. [...] She is currently creating a collection of paper products focused on the contrasting unique tones of bleached whites and dark pigmented shades of blue. [... ] Entirely by hand, the fibers undergo a transformation of reverence. They are cooked, cleaned, and laid in the snow to bleach naturally in the winter sun, or pigmented to create rich hues of color. The fibers are beaten by hand and suspended in a vat filled with water, then put into motion with a swirl of the hand. Often, specks of silver or gold leaf, or wisps of small feathers are churned into the mix, as the vat morphs into a new kinetic composition. A dip of the mould and deckle below the surface swiftly collects a sheet of pulp as the water shimmies back into the vat. The sheet is then pressed and transferred to glass to dry. Illuminated by the sunlight, the unique formations of the long Kozo fibers are brought to life, suspended in motion. Handmade paper illuminated.”
