The Art of Dinosaur Designs
Saturday 10 March - Sunday 15 April
Dinosaur Designs grew very naturally, very organically for Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy. It's a philosophy of colour and form. Working with resin is like working with paint and that's where Steve and Louise both started, as students working in a studio at art school. Every piece made is crafted by hand in Australia, passing through many pairs of hands in the process, giving each piece the slight differences that make it unique.
