The Bay of Fires - north east coast of Tasmania. There is something wildly romantic and inspirational about this place. My open air studio for a few days last spring. To me, it is the most beautiful part of Australia’s total east coastline. Pure white squeaky clean sand, gloriously translucent seas of many blues and greens and rocks splashed with reds and oranges. All so easily accessible. It is a complete contrast to the magnificent buttongrass meadows of the Tasmania’s south west wilderness, but another favourite place in Tasmania.

On a recent trip to the West Coast to get Huon Pine, Lloyd took some photographs of the magnificant buttongrass meadows along the way, the inspiration behind our name.

On a rare, brilliantly sunny day in the middle of winter we set off for a walk around Dove Lake which lies at the foot of Cradle Mountain in north west Tasmania.

We were only wearing gumboots. The lure of the cradle was irresistible and called us upwards.

What a thrill to find ourselves in this magic spot looking forwards and backwards to vistas beyond words.

Cradle Mountain, The Ballroom Forest, Snug....with names like these how could you not want to experience Tasmania?
