Renee Waters is an Australian fashion and homewares label run by Renee and Travis Waters. As a collaborative business and arts practice, the label merges Renee’s background in fine art, silversmithing, and ceramics studies with Travis’ experience as a mould maker and background in textile art, painting, and sculpture.
The combination of these diverse skills has seen the label flourish to become a sustainable business focused on making elegant jewellery and homewares for art, fashion, and design nerds to enjoy.
Renee Waters’ products focus on colour, form, and patterns, with slip casting porcelain the primary method of creation.
This allows Renee and Travis to mix colours together to replicate water and patterns they see in nature, bringing a unique element of inspiration and craftsmanship to their work. The couple also use hand building and slumping techniques, utilising their metalwork skills to design their jewellery findings.
The label is actively involved in the design community, participating in design markets across Australia and stocked in national boutiques both nationally and in New Zealand. Renee and Travis continue to research and test new ceramic techniques, with the label now incorporating homewares, with a range of small vessels and planters soon to be released.
