T&W encountered Asher at the Design Made Trade stand at the Decoration + Design trade fair in Sydney and fell in love with his Kav light. Apart from the timeless design (the wooden peg detail is a lovely touch) and beautiful shape, Asher creates clever combinations of ceramic and timber
The materials for the Kav pendant are sustainably sourced and the lights are hand-crafted in Sydney to ensure a low carbon footprint. He uses ceramic casting, an age-old craft that ensures a high quality product. Combined with his design sensibility, this ensures his work has a place in people’s homes for some time to come.
Ash has already been picked up by interior magazines and has featured in Belle, House & Garden, Home Beautiful and Green magazine. A man to watch!
