We live in Matheson Bay, on the Matakana Coast. It’s a much more relaxed style of living (compared to our prior Kingsland warehouse studio and apartment ), which provides us with a bit of peace and headspace to really focus on our studio work. We make items for the home, essentially. We have a core selection of fragrance products and prints etc. We both also create our own individual studio pieces for our combined online store and commission - Antonia with her bespoke dried floral work and Mark with homeware pieces.
We’ve both been creatively inclined since childhood, so ending up together in a creative studio was inevitable. Antonia got into her floral work via education in fashion, jewellery and then fresh floristry. And Mark ended up making homeware pieces via education in furniture and architecture. Our favourite thing about what we do is the day to day variety of a creative studio. - Antonia De Vere & Mark Seeney
