Jesseca-Bree Candusio AKA "Jesse ~ Bree" is a woodworker, award winning artist and interior designer living in Central Victoria, AUS.
I create bespoke utilitarian wares from reclaimed timbers, given them new life and purpose. Each piece is one of a kind, hand crafted with traditional and contemporary woodworking techniques to retain it's own unique personality and characteristics.
My studio space is based in an old observatory beside a forest, and I am constantly inspired by the sciences and the natural world around me. Astronomy, mapping and chemistry all influence my aesthetics and designs, but so does the simple shapes and patterns I discover in day to day life.
Environmentally conscious, I research the ethics of my tools and materials in an effort to 'create kindly', with minimal waste and impact. I craft thoughtfully, with purpose, to forge curious and reflective pieces that enhance the experience of being at home while lending to expression, function and individuality.
My current focus is on organic shapes, planet and celestial-themed spoons and incorporating different materials into my work, like gold leaf and glass.
