Christopher Boots

Trained in Industrial Design, Christopher Boots has a background in product design engineering. All products made by the brand are handmade in Melbourne, Australia using a broad variety of techniques from a team of artisans that ensure a commitment to quality. Artisans at Christopher Boots include: glass-blowers, coppersmiths, ceramicists, sculptors, and bronze casters. The studio carefully composes these artisans as an orchestra for perfect harmony.  The underlying ethos of the studio is to mix materials and processes, experimenting with techniques old and new. Combining these with an investigative sensibility gives birth to an aesthetic that often is completely unexpected, still retaining traditional elements of form, proportion and scale.

Christopher Boots is presented by Melbourne Design Week as part of the Destination initiative at Downtown Design 2015.
