Design at its purest form. The aptly named Form & Fable is a creative partnership between Auckland-based designers Mark Buntzen and Kate McIntyre that really embraces the art of the handmade – objects lovingly and skilfully crafted, imbued with heart and love. Functional and aesthetically beautiful, too.
While Mark’s work is focused more on minimalist designs made out of wood and other materials – like the beautiful line light (above) and serving platters – Kate works with ceramics including fine porcelain, often slip cast and finished with own graphic-influenced design hand carved into the surface of the vessels, bowls and objects of art she creates.
“Together we believe that the love we put into making our work: the late nights, early starts, eye-squinting attention to detail and seemingly endless rolls of sandpaper all translate into beautiful, unique pieces you will love.”
~ Mark & Kate McIntyre, Form & Fable
