Both are educators and makers utilizing digital technologies in the creation of their artwork.

Her porcelain vessels are covered with sgraffito and oxide drawings inspired by the marginalized ecosystems of the littoral zone of seaside Queensland, such as shorelines, rock pools and coastal wallum scrub. In addition to domestic wares Garson has been mixing food, music and vessels into a performance piece/event called The Handmade Table. To see a video about the piece please visit her Vimeo page.
