You can learn a lot from mistakes, miscalculations, misinterpretations. My creator, Louise Olsen, celebrates the perfection within imperfection. The Australian artist playfully expressed: ‘I am so in love with the process, there is so much discovery in the making, there are so many errors that happen along the way.’ I am the result of flow and form. The languorous flow of a delicate jellyfish floating carelessly, seduced by the glowing form of the alluring moonlight. I am both practical and precious. Borne from the tenacious resin, a perfect gelatinous liquid, singularly flowed through each one of my tentacles. Slowly. Tenderly. Sinking beautifully. Layer upon layer of manipulated pigmented shades, my brilliance materialised into a solid purposeful table. Surprisingly, I come from a small family, there are 49 others all lovingly hand-made in Australia. And despite my solid and silky-smooth appearance, there is one cautionary tip I must share. I am like wood and may be prone to scratches, handle me with care and please keep me away from direct heat.

I am a creation by Louise Olsen and I come from the Liquid Moon series.

Whenever we give up, leave behind, and forget too much, there is always the danger that the things we have neglected will return with added force.

To control the breathing is to control the mind. With different patterns of breathing, you can fall in love, you can hate someone, you can feel the whole spectrum of feelings by changing your breathing.

Isn’t it crazy that even the smallest things could remind you of something or someone. You feel both a mixture of joy and pain, people and things may be temporary but the memories remain.

You can never completely know anyone, no matter how well you think you do. There will always be some truth about them you don’t ever get to know.
