Fremantle Bazaar Weekend

A great weekend! Athough busy it was also very relaxing with a spirit of camaraderie which is a pleasure to experience. The Bazaar is a wonderful event and seems to get better every year. Lots of fantastic stalls - an overall impression of light and colour. It was lovely to catch up with people I have met through the year in other events and meet new people. Thank you to all my customers and the fabulous feedback!

I am always curious to see what the most popular items are. I made several wrapped and stitched cats and a flock of raw-edge fabric birds which were hung on an olive tree branch in a pot - all of them sold! There are more available through Calico and Ivy - you can see them on the C&I blog:

If you would like to follow up on anything from the weekend please email me at I will be starting on the orders from the Bazaar this week.

The last market for the year for me is this Thursday in Subiaco. Details of the event a…

On a recent visit to Bali I was inspired by the everyday occurences of  Balinese life. Things taken for granted seem enchanting to the visitor. We hired a bike and headed north, forgetting to take the map and following the road or taking a turn to satisfy a curiosity. I am learning not to plan and trust that leaving things open can lead to delightful experiences. And there's a parallel with art-making : working with found objects and allowing the process to happen.
Welcome to Yuniko Studio.

I am an artist and designer living in Perth Western Australia. I work from home working mainly with found object and materials to produce a range of products which I sell at local designer markets - Perth Upmarket, Made on The Left, Unwrapped, Fremantle Bazaar and on the Etsy site at I am also an art therapist and am very much guided by the notion of art as expression and communication in the work I do.

Through visiting this blog, you are invited to experience some of what happens in the studio. Feedback and interaction is definitely encouraged! I have always loved exploring what other people are doing and appreciate the way others share their thoughts and processes online, so I hope I am able to offer something to others.

Being a somewhat reserved person, I have had my doubts about blogging. The benefits of being able to connect with other like-minded people and to show the 'behind-the scenes' aspects to art-making are t…
