Handmade in the Otways
This piece was first available on my website in 2014 after a 3 month long trip around Europe. I saw lion door knockers and statues everywhere I went and came home with many, many photos of other people's doors and their lion door knockers as inspiration. Many of my favourite people own this piece and I'm pretty excited to make them available again to share. The photo of the two lion rings together on my teacher's bench is actually the first two lion rings I ever made back in 2014.
Handmade via the lost wax method, all pieces are cast in Melbourne in recycled precious metal and hand finished here in my Otway forest studio.
