Dinosaur Designs ‘Seed Pod’
Dinosaur Designs duo – Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy – comes up trumps once again with their new collection ‘Seed Pod’. Striking sculptural pieces in a strong colour palette, they’re full of confidence.
You often think of their resin jewellery as fluid shapes beautifully naïve and smooth to the touch, well think again. This collection will blow that out of the water. It’s decorative to the max. Organic origins are evident but they are teamed this time around, with divine detailing and a flirtation of bling. Pitted and podded, generous sweeping hollows curve back on themselves. Tactile as always you want to trace your fingers over each piece. Fine pod strands jostle in between big bean shaped plates studded with precious seeds. Everything is teeming with new life.
We love this new direction for Olsen and Ormandy and it is clear to see that this is a treasured family affair. The photo shoot was clearly a joyous collaboration between long time friends; two mothers (Louise Olsen & writer Caia Hagel), two fathers (Stephen Ormandy and photographer Tim Georgeson) and their two daughters (Camille Ormandy and Nova Orchid).
It’s so beautiful to watch the creative growth of this truly iconic Australian brand. Congratulations Dinosaur Designs on continuing to delight us.
