Marley & Lockyer Autumn/Winter Photo Shoot…peek!


Preparations are well underway for the upcoming Sydney Finders Keepers Markets on the 31st May/1st June, and even though I should be doing nothing but making for this event right now, I made some time to do a photo shoot of products from the range for Autumn/Winter 13.

These new ‘grow’ plates and bowls have not been released in store yet…but will be very soon. I love the simplicity of them.


Some of the current range made an appearance, like the Peony Porcelain/Wood Ring, the Provence Pendant Necklace and the little Bunny Brooch…shown here with those buns I posted about here.


My model for the day was Sarah, who some of you might recognize from the Marley & Lockyer market stall.


I really wanted this shoot to be relaxed, just like Sarah was at home doing her thing on a lazy Autumn weekend. Here is the Geo Porcelain/Wood Ring and the ceramic Pod Drop earrings. Sarah really has beautiful hands…not like my poor ceramic bashed hands!


These necklaces – the Pod Necklace will only be available at the upcoming Boutique Launceston Market and the Sydney Finders Keepers markets.



Love this shot. I think it captures the whole Autumn/Winter feel I was after




This ceramic brooch, which is still un-named looks great on my big cowl that Sarah has on. I do need your help with that name….

One of you, who picks the name that I love, will win this brooch and the earrings shown!

If you have a name for it, please leave it in the comments section and I will pick a name…I wouldn’t mind hearing what you think of the photo shoot sneak peak too please.

    Very ethereal photo shoot. All lovely and soft. For a name, I’d suggest “A darling bud in May” partly inspired by the television show of a similar namesake and also as it featured in May. Best of luck with the Finders Keepers Market!

    I have to admit that I was doing a quick scroll through and thinking “oh yes, Love the ceramics, beautiful texturing on the plates…” but the brooch stopped me short. Very fine and delicate and super glissy. It was only as I whizzed past it, backed up to have another look, then read the text under it to see what it was called…so I call it “AMELIA”

    Wow! All this gorgeousness! Your brooch reminds me of a ‘sweet briar’ rose.
    It’s flower meaning is Poetry, and Spring.

    “Marl Flower”

    Marl or marlstone is a calcium carbonate or lime-rich mud or mudstone which contains variable amounts of clays and silt.

    Such lovely pieces, as always! I’m thinking of names such as “Vintage Rose” “Tea Rose” “English Rose” or “Papillon Rose” (french for butterfly).
    Good luck choosing out of everyones clever names!

    • Ness Lockyer
      May 8, 2013 | 12:27 pm

      Why thank you xx
      They are very pretty names…love the butterfly one!

    Hi Ness, beautiful broach and images. Best of luck with the collection.
    How about calling your broach “full bloom” or ” the full bloom” in french i think it translates to “le plein fleur” which would also be a lovely name.

    • Ness Lockyer
      May 8, 2013 | 12:27 pm

      Oooo! I like that one. Thanks xx

    “French Bloom” for the name of the brooch.

    I love the photo shoot Ness, it reminds me of lazy winter days in front of the open fire, sipping hot chocolate.
    My suggestion of the broach name is Wildflower

    Beautiful photo shoot, love the muted colours really gives an autumn/winter feel. I think the brooch could be called The “old lady” chrysanthemum…. “old lady” after your house and chrysanthemum because the dictionary states its an autumn flower…. x

    • Ness Lockyer
      May 8, 2013 | 9:05 pm

      Oh, thats so sweet…we do love our “Old Lady”. Great thinking, Stacey!

    The light in your photos is beautiful, a very Autumn feel to them.
    The word ‘flora’ just popped into my head when I saw your brooch. I am new to your blog and have found you via ‘A Country Style’magazine. Love your ceramics, Neen

    Lovely brooch! I thought of the name “Sakura”, which means “cherry blossom” in Japanese. I live in the Niagara area where the fruit trees are blossoming just now. It’s my favourite time of the year to go for a drive through the farmlands and see thousands of pink and white blooming trees.

    • Ness Lockyer
      May 9, 2013 | 12:28 pm

      I love that! How beautiful to live among all of those divine trees! N xx

    Hi I just adore your blog & images. I don’t normally comment but always check in to look at your gorgeous photos and home. I felt compelled to tell you that I think the brooch is ‘Celeste’. I have no idea why this name popped into my head but it did! I then looked up the meaning & here it is! : Celeste comes from the Latin word caelestis, meaning “heavenly” or “divine.” Celeste is the French variation of the name. Seems quite fitting :) Bec

      Hi Bec,
      Thanks for your comment…you should stop in and say hi more often! :)
      That is a very pretty name. I am going to have a hard time choosing thats for sure!

    Hi, normally I’m not one to comment but we have had a very grey day here in Lima (Peru) and I enjoyed looking at your cosy images and thought your brooch looked like a little bit of “winter sunshine”

    Hey Ness,
    I was going to suggest ‘Autumn Bloom’ but after reading all the posts it seems we all have the same ‘bloom’ idea!!!!! You have so many wonderful and fitting suggestions to chose from. I don’t know how you’ll pick the winner!
    I went in and saw Jim at Fossil Vintage. He is such a helpful man and has the most amazing treasures. I finally found the typewriter and galvanised watering can (as well as a few other treasures) I had been looking for. I told him you recommended him to your followers.

      May 9, 2013 | 9:43 pm

      I’m so happy you went there Enjaye…it’s an amazing store with the most perfect pieces. That is awesome you found what you have always wanted there. There seems to be a lot of people who have visited Jim after that post and have found something they have wanted for a long time.
      Thank you for the name too…I am going to have a hard time!!
