Designed by Louise Olsen & Stephen Ormandy,¬†Dinosaur Designs¬†new Earth Collection is handmade in their Sydney HQ.
‚ÄúWe feel there is something in the nature of rock formation that relates very strongly to the human body; we are made from minerals, and we too change over time, the marks of life gradually etched on our bodies,‚Äù¬†Stephen Ormandy explains of the inspiration for the collection
The colour palette encompassing¬†grey, ivory & brown combining with precious metal highlights of silver & bronze – the collection consists of 35 resin jewellery styles, & 20 homeward items, featuring silver / bronze precious metal pieces.
Working with Australian-born, new York-based photographer Martyn Thompson, the collection is heralded by a superb photoshoot that led to a creative collaboration producing a stunning body of images.
Louise Olsen adds ‚ÄúThere is an amazing understated quality that manages to be painterly, poetic, and graceful in these images. We‚Äôve always loved Martyn’s use of natural light and tone.‚Äù
The Dinosaur Designs¬†New York flagship store ¬†showcased the Earth Collection in a specially curated display by Martyn Thompson, featuring his hand-crafted sculptures that were used in the photoshoot.
