All our objects are designed and then made right here by us in our own studio in Perth. We even use our own machines combined with hand construction which gives us the ultimate 'from concept' to actual object control and allows for a personal touch to every object made.

THE CREATORS:
Our products are conceived and designed by Cynthia Verspaget & Adam Fiannaca, partners in life and business.

Adam has 15 years of extensive experience in all areas of construction as well as having a strong creative aspect to everything he does. Adam is a Lecturer at Challenger Tafe lecturing in engineering and construction/welding. He has been flown to various locations including NZ to consult and instruct on projects in the boat building industry because of of his extensive and expansive technical and creative knowledge. His ability to understand and operate in many industries from CAD & 3D creation to the physical construction of objects is well recognised nationally and overseas.

Cynthia is an acknowledged and experienced artist of over 20 years specialising in the field of technology and creativity and currently is employed as a Sessional Academic at Curtin University in Fine Art. She is currently in the completion stage of her PhD by research also at Curtin University on the subject of human - biotechnological/technological relationships using both the zombie figure from popular culture and fine art to discuss the details of her subject. Both Cynthia and Adam have exhibited nationally and internationally, Cynthia has also presented at several conferences on the subject of art & technology.

THE METHODS & MATERIALS:
Our products are made using a variety of materials and methods like composites, enamelled metals, cast resin, textiles (chiefly hand printed), laser cut acrylic and wood, router cut materials and sometimes can include vintage objects as materials.

All our items are made locally in our workshop which allows us the highest of quality control and also allows a large range of bespoke options for you. All of our laser products are cut on site on our very own laser cutter (we call him Crazy Ivan) and are always lovingly, painstakingly and carefully assembled by hand.

Machine cut doesn't have to mean machine made. We always hand assemble all our products with love and care and in house design with our desire and passion for art and fun in mind. While we aim to buy in unique elements for some of our products, nothing we sell is pre-assembled elsewhere; its all local and each final product is designed and put together by us right here in Western Australia! Many of our products like some of our enamel and fabric lines are also handmade from scratch too. We also use every bit of scrap we have that we find that is of suitable quality, and source eco & low impact manufacturing where we can, making many of our products eco conscious. We research extensively all of our materials before choosing a technique to ensure the safest possible methods.

THE LOVE:
Shiny Rabbit can be described as an edgy contemporary fantasy sub culture meets urban appeal brand encompassing subject matter such as the mysterious jackalope (part jack rabbit part antelope), wild animals, dark and romantic musings, cultural objects, tattoo culture and symbols allowing each owner to map their own story onto their newly purchased object.

Everything we make, and how we package our product is done with care and love as we adore creating and making quality objects that give joy to those who invest in them.

We currently and mainly sell wholesale but if you see something you love contact us and we can broker a sale for you with one of our stockists. Stay Shiny!
