SOPHIE CONRAN | Greenhouse + Indoor Watering Can in Buttermilk
A sensational example of Burgon & Ball’s collaboration with Sophie Conran, the latest generation of the British design dynasty. She brings her ‘modern country house’ style to a range of must-have garden tools and accessories, elevating the everyday for home gardeners and plant lovers.
Ergonomically, this tool is a joy to use. As with all things in life, it’s a matter of balance: the handle slides forwards easily in your hand as you tilt, the slender, angled spout to direct the pour for on-target watering. The result is more moisture where it’s needed and less waste of a valuable resource in a dry continent.
Behind this fusion of beauty and practicality is Burgon & Ball’s peerless metal-working skills, developed continually throughout the company’s 290-year history. The steel body is treated with a protective powder coating and a sophisticated matt finish in a range of colours, including Sophie’s choice of this deliciously creamy buttermilk hue.
A metal seal bearing the Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball logo on the top surface of the can adds the finishing touch and marks this out as a design of distinction. Pretty enough to leave out on the windowsill with pride.

JOURNEY OF SOMETHING | IT'S GOOD TO BE HOME 1000 pc Jigsaw Puzzle
Artist Leah Bartholomew returned from Melbourne to her home base in Northern New South Wales and Coolangatta Queensland. This work is an ode to that homecoming.
Leah is a multidisciplinary artist who has a background in graphic design and Fine Arts, as well as textile design. Her optimistic and bright artworks are an abstract representation of the beauty found in the landscape and life of her local environment, a response to her daily interactions with her local base, Coolangatta, QLD and Northern NSW.
The ritual of daily walks plays an integral part in forming the initial concepts for her pieces. Her vast paintings begin as small torn paper collages, an intuitive puzzle of unexpected colours and feelings that take shape based on the influences of her environment and mood. These collages may represent the colours of the weather, or how the warmth of the rocks on the beach felt, or the blinding brightness of an electric blue sky. The colour palette is carefully chosen in response to this and the paper collages then inform the large scale paintings. Each day is different and her affinity with the landscape provides endless material to respond to.
Exercise your mind and excite your eyes. Or share the love, puzzles make the BEST gifts.
