Object 150 - Hayden Youlley
Have a unique object created for you for $150 and support a local maker
Makers and designers are doing it tough with their usual marketplaces in galleries, shops and markets cancelled and closed during the Covid-19 lockdown.
The ADC team are working passionately to implement opportunities for our designers to recover creatively and financially, and reach out to their audiences. Help us help our makers!
Object 150 is where craft and design lovers pay $150 to have a work created exclusively for you by one of our makers. The work will be an original, unique, handmade object created during Covid-19 by the maker for you.
Current makers include: Herbert & Friends | Milly Dent | Nicole Robins | Sylvia Riley | Vanessa Ion | Jude Love | Felix Gill | Katherine Mahoney | Marika Svikis | Hayden Youlley | TRADE the MARK | Zara Collins | Emily Copp
Total cost of the work is $150 plus GST and postage, as required. No postage charge for pick up. No commission goes to ADC on this project. We are passing 100% of the sale to the maker.
Delivery time is 4 weeks from order placement. We will advise you once the item is ready for shipping by Australia Post, or pickup by appointment from Australian Design Centre.
A shout out to our friends at subjectmatterart.com in London from whom we shamelessly borrowed the idea! You can support their Lockdown Commissions here.
Hayden Youlley studied a Bachelor of Design at COFA which gave him the opportunity to experiment with various design disciplines and introduced him to ceramics.
The endless possibilities malleable clay offered to explore his ideas about of surface, scale and volume really sparked his interest. For Hayden, the process of designing, prototyping and producing ceramics, both sculptural and functional, involves the right mix of instant satisfaction, challenge, surprise, problem solving and beauty to keep him interested in exploring all its possibilities.
That’s the fanciest way he has found to say that it is a really fun and rewarding way to get your hands dirty and throw mud around all day.
