These are the people that source the materials, design and make The Hundred Mile Home’s wares. Committed to the principles of one hundred mile making for this project, and a more environmentally sustainable and socially responsible way of living generally, they bring their specialist skills to the table so we can all enjoy handmade eco, ethical, sustainable and beautiful goods.
Residing just shy of the Barossa Valley Pete has been a maker his entire life. He has a most amazing workshop and studio where he makes his beautiful wood and metal wares using reclaimed materials and sustainably harvested wood.
Kate has a gorgeous pottery studio to the north of the Barossa Valley and it is here, using a beautiful wooden kick powered wheel, that she makes stunning ceramic pieces for us from locally sourced clay. With a long history in art & ceramics, including as a Jam Factory Associate, we are excited to have her on board and making for us.
Trained as a visual artist Ilona contributes ceramics and wooden wares to the mix, ensuring that her materials are 100 mile and sustainable. Located in The Barossa Valley she has her own tiny pottery studio, a determination to explore native clays, and a slight addiction to rescuing wood from potential bonfires and wood chippers.
Scullery Made Teas
Cherie from Scullery Made has used her amazing blending skills to put together the most beautiful 100 mile tea for The Hundred Mile Home, with all the ingredients sourced locally. This is a small bespoke project, but one we totally love.
Amy and Mali
Barossa based mother and daughter duo Amy and Mali started making paper from rescued and reclaimed materials after discovering just how hard it was to source ethical and environmentally sustainable art papers. When you organically grow your own corn, onions and garlic, use the husks and add 5% recycled paper to the mix for your papers, I don’t think it’s possible to get much more sustainable. And then there’s the 100% cotton from reclaimed denim in gorgeous blue hues. Just delicious.
