Pop-up Plant Pots
Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens has launched a special, ongoing pop-up in the Growing Friends Nursery. This spring we are thrilled to be featuring the Sydney based maker Trade the Mark.

The work of artist Christina McLean, Trade the Mark is committed to the slow tradition of hand craftsmanship, which inspires a love of beauty of individual objects. Encompassing rich indigos, beautiful burnt oranges and imaginative details, her artworks and bespoke pieces are inspired by organic textures and hand-sourced treasures from her travels. Truly embracing her mark making passion, each piece is painstakingly hand made and painted, a one-off, created in her Marrickville studio.

Trade the Mark’s work will be available in the Growing Friends Nursery until mid-December.
