Penelope Tree

 

With inspiration from vintage, retro, kitsch, and rockabilly is it any wonder that Cathy produces such an eclectic range of items.

From place mats and coasters to hairbands, oven mitts and embellished cardigans Cathy’s sense of style come through beautifully.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fat Spatula

Fat Spatula

Fat SpatulaFat Spatula is the love-child of Haumoana based artist Andy Heyward.

It is a label that consolidates many creative pursuits. Under this brand, ideas are dreamt, coffee is consumed, paintings are realised and laughter is had.

While being a self-employed graphic artist, Andy also paints on a regular basis. He is a director and curator of two social-enterprise stores in Hawke’s Bay, Coco and Co in Hastings and The Department of Curiosities and Fine Things in Napier, as well as stocking many fine stores throughout New Zealand.  He can also be found at craft markets and shows pimping his art and craft products under the Fat Spatula label.

I consider my work to be deeply shallow and I enjoy bringing a smile to people’s faces. I prefer it when others do the intellectualising about my work, they can often find more meaningful and deeper insights than I was aware of. I am just in this for the laughs . . . and world domination.
