The evolution of creative inspiration

My wife and I have always had a passion for old things, no doubt that's why she married me!

When we lived on the Gold Coast of Australia we'd frequent the local auctions to see what gems we could pick up for our home. Initially, we liked traditional antiques, especially furniture, but our taste started to change toward vintage and industrial items. We were ahead of the industrial/upcycled trend, and enjoyed weekends spent looking for beautiful pieces purely for our own enjoyment.

Fast forward a few years and we moved to the Blue Mountains where I learnt to blacksmith from my late father-in-law, Wyndham Parsons, who was one of Australia's oldest working blacksmiths. Having lived and blacksmithed in the same place for over 50 years, you can probably imagine all the treasures that lurk around the property and in his workshop. For a passionate re-purposer it offered an endless source of inspiration and assistance. When Wyndham passed away, we packed up the workshop and moved to the Redlands, south of Brisbane.

Combined with the inspiration of my wife's design skills and our shared enjoyment of hunting for interesting items, I enjoy the challenge of taking a rejected item and turning it into something practical again. It's as if the item is being given a second chance, and I'm sure that's something we can all relate to!

Welcome. If, like us, you forgo the shiny display windows in search of long forgotten gems, hidden in dusty back rooms, sheds and outbuildings, then we hope your travels through Industriana are as rewarding.
