Trophies for Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi and Cottesloe
Previously known for its use in industrial appliances, Dinosaur Designs has been molding resin into beautiful works of art for the home, industry and fashion world for over two decades. After I first laid eyes on the bracelet gracing my Aussie fashionplate co-worker's wrist, I couldn't get over the depth of the material. Like wearing the most glamorous piece of lightweight buffed and shined fimo clay you could think of, I simply had to see where it came from. Bracelets, beads, vases, trophies, the work of Louise Olsen, Stephen Ormandy and Liane Rossler gained a large following respected and loved by fans in and outside the fashion industry (and my office). After prototyping, molding and enhancing the design, each piece is finished by hand in the Sydney studio. No two items alike or perfect, these three entrepreneurs have bridged the gap between art, design and fashion. Most notable in Australia, Dinosaur Designs is increasingly popular in America with their online gallery and store on Mott Street in SoHo. My bank account can attest I am certifiably enamored by this wonder material called resin, and am look to purchase a piece in every color imaginable.
