I’m pleased this morning to be able to talk about a new range at The Potting Shed – a collection of garden and conservatory furniture and sculpture by local Southern Highlands artist, Joe Vinks. These pieces are truly stunning works of art – expertly crafted from fallen timbers, predominantly gum, and embellished with gum and casuarina nuts. They are rustic, elegant and witty. Most of Joe’s commissions are for international clients these days – since a major ski lodge installation for a high profile Australian in Aspen launched him in America, his work is now in demand around the globe. So naturally we are pretty excited to be able to show several of his works. Below a beautiful console table, a round occasional table and decorative sculpture, a two seater garden bench, the ‘Outback’ chair, the Bushman’s chair and two versions of his plant ‘wraps’. These bottomless pots are not only strikingly lovely – they are a very clever design enabling you to move large potted plants, from place to place with ease. Joe will make gates and all other items to your exact dimensions so if you have a particular need, please let us know. In the meantime, do come in to The Potting Shed and view this gorgeous and very Australian collection by the talented Mr Vinks.
