Clay or fibre! I can't decide. I love to make whimsical things that are deeply loved and meant to be used. I am inspired by all things whimsical, magical, fantastical, and quirky. Maybe think of me as 'the not-so-serious potter'.

I’m an Interior Designer by trade, who fell in love with fibre arts. My first dye pans hit the stove in early 2019 and I haven’t looked back. I pride myself on creating complex and layered colourways, but believe that solids and neutrals can be just as interesting.

2xinfinity

Two Times Infinity

two times infinity explores and revitalizes the art and craft of the past into the present. And does this while focussing on doing no harm to people, places and creatures. To meet that goal, we do three things.

One, we look for suppliers who share this value to protect the animals who provide our fibre, to protect the planet by embracing healthy environmental practices and to protect the people who harvest, process and dye the products we sell. Two, we carry products that are all produced from raw materials from nature. We have made a choice to not carry highly processed manmade fibres. Three, we have researched to find minimal packaging that is plastic free so that you, the consumer, can repurpose, recycle or compost it. Even down to the glue on our packing tape.
