Art Antiques Antlers: About Ellen, Philosophy, Design Consultation Service and Credentials

About Ellen, Philosophy, Design Consultation and Credentials 
About Ellen:
Ellen is a passionate designer who enjoys up-cycling furniture and decorator items from recycled materials.
As a child she fossicked at demolition yards with her father.  She learnt how to sew on a Singer Treadle Sewing Machine because her mother wouldn’t let her use the electric one. The treadle didn’t have zigzag stitch so she made up a zig zag stitch by moving the fabric at the needle point every turn. At primary school Ellen won the Hans Christen Anderson Fairy Tale, Art Competition for a painting of ‘The Little Match Girl’.
When she left school, she deferred Fashion Design and became an Art Teacher. She taught mostly Home Economics due to the pattern styling component. Ellen remarks, “I love pattern styling but it is becoming a lost art nowadays.” Throughout her teaching career, Ellen has been Head of Department, Guidance Officer, Deputy Principal, Principal, Head of Special Education, University Lecturer and Tutor.
Ellen embarked on her dream, Art Antiques Antlers, when her children left the nest. She goes on to say, “When the grandchildren arrive, they will be brought up living with antiques just like their parents. Antiques are very hardy and can sustain the love and exploration of young families.”
Ellen also adds, “I hope to teach my clients how to love and embark on their own person style and enjoy the things they love in their home. I believe that following trends and fashion is not always reflective of individual tastes. Art Antiques Antlers products are rare and hard to find and are to be treasured by clients who love them.”
Design Consultation Service:
Art Antiques Antlers offers a design consultation service and will assist clients to ‘make antiques fit’ in a modern home and to compliment what they already have. Our goal is to assist people who are wanting to live a sustainable life to be more appreciative of antiques.
These gorgeous products are available for wedding hire.

Antler Artist – Craig Bloxsome – Art Antique Antler Centrepiece Table

Prestigious Round Table

This classic Art Antique Antler piece is a prestigious table stunningly designed and made by Craig Bloxsome using an antique table as a starting point.  The table has been restored to it’s former glory by Craig and a beveled round piece of glass rests upon the table, which is so rare as you can’t get glaziers to do beveled glass any more.

Antler pieces have been strategically placed under the top base of the table in an artistic array, typical of Craig’s work. This is a statement piece and is representative of what Art Antiques Antlers aspires to be and is.
