Porcelain art by ANNA SCHEEN December 5th, 2016

Porcelain art by Anna Scheen - Lino Girl - Melbourne Design

HAND FORMED, HAND-PAINTED PORCELAIN WORKS, LIMITED EDITION PRINTS AND WORKS ON PAPER…beautiful creations by Anna Scheen – linogirl.com.au.

I had the pleasure of seeing, feeling, admiring & buying this most beautiful art this past weekend. I am in love forever. Here is a STATEMENT BY THE ARTIST … also capturing our hearts.

“A quiet smile, a flash of anger before it is restrained, quiet love that goes un-noticed. The stillness of a room that has just been left, the quietness inside ourselves, the quiet strength that we gather in a moment of clarity….
It is these small aspects of everyday life that interest me the most. I am interested in the moments that we miss when we do not play the role of the careful observer. We miss the small changes in our environments until we are struck by the larger events that ask us for all of our attention. Working with porcelain, I find that as a material, it captures this fragile state in a very pure way.”
Anna Scheen

… and much loved by The Luna Gal.

Mood Indigo – all shades of Blue October 31st, 2016

Posted by: lunaAdmin Category: We Love
textile knit design in shades of indigo blue

Indigo is among the oldest colours to be used for textile dyeing and printing. A variety of plants have provided indigo throughout history, but most natural indigo was obtained from those in the genus Indigofera – native to the tropics.

Cobalt blue pigment and indigo blue dye are two of the most distinctive and influential colourants employed by artists worldwide.

But it is the beauty of sea and sky – especially in the open ocean of the tropics – that truly reflects the spectrum of blue. Dreaming of blue skies on grey days, diving into crystal clear blue water whilst trapped at work, singing the blues, feeling blue … those moody blues manoeuvre through so many of our emotions. They capture light, dark and shade.

So this month we celebrate BLUE – all shades of blue – and continue our knit design journey, illuminating and reflecting all our moods.

Mood Indigo – music by Duke Ellington and Barney Bigard with lyrics by Irving Mills – classic jazz.
…..and maybe MY favourite version is by the late great Nina Simone…..

The Scent of Spring October 6th, 2016

The scent of Spring at Luna Gallery

Senteurs is the French expression for scent or perfume — & Studio Senteurs has created the most divine perfumes, which are now very much a part of the Luna Gal daily wardrobe.

With the absence of any sunshine here in Melbourne, we savour these alluring scents, to remind us of Spring … to bring us courage & joy … to lighten up these grey days.
HEAVEN SCENT

Each signature scent is inspired by & designed with love, imagination & individuality.
I particularly fell in lust with Figueres in our salubrious stylists studio bathroom – & from there history is made – I now love, adore & wear perfume. But only Studio Senteurs has enticed me to do so.

Passionate about our planet, their practice is 100% Australian owned, exclusively using ethically sourced natural ingredients from Australia & New Zealand.
All Studio Senteurs formulations are toxicity free & vegan, using the highest quality organic alcohol sourced from sugar cane.

… and as the very lovely founder Anyes Dequidt says … ” We honour our quality ingredients by selecting the finest essential oils & resins to stimulate your ‘bien-Etre’ (well being). ”

We love your ‘scentiments’ Anyes xx

Ninos Knitted Baby Beanies September 29th, 2016

Knitted baby beanies made in melbourne by Luna Ninos

Luna Niños is the originator of fine quality baby knitwear in Australia.
We began with a vision to create simple yet stylish exquisite knitwear for baby’s & kids back in 2002. True design takes a long, long time – especially with sizing & fit – but we had the best help & expertise … our FRIENDS & CLIENTS … & our KNITTERS.

Initially there were 8 styles in our range – and we still love them ALL after 14 years – timeless design lasts a long, long time. And so do really good quality knits!

So after a decade of sitting back watching the fast paced, fast fashion & furiously fast world of ‘way too many trends’, we have our own conclusion … LET’S KEEP THIS REAL…LET’S KEEP THIS SIMPLE. let’s re-produce our beautiful, original knitwear range – because quality sings – quality knits last & are loved for a lifetime.

Dreams do come true … and we hope our dream & vision will outlast the fast … we believe it will.
