I remember being at Rose Street Market last Summer, wandering around in the blistering heat thinking about the closest 7-Eleven I could get a slurpee from. The colours and patterns of Jubly-Umph’s stall, however, caught my attention as I headed for the exit. My Slurpee was on hold.
When visiting markets I often have to curb my ‘Mike Teevee’ inquisitiveness and avoid asking, “So, how do you make ‘em?!”
But without giving too much away, here’s some technical stuff that Jubly-Umph freely divulges.
The original design is transferred onto solid polystyrene plastic, hand cut, sanded and coated in high gloss resin. Each piece takes 7 days to complete (woh!) and is finished with stainless steel chains and findings.
And the best thing? They’re designed and made in Melbourne. What do you think of Jubly-Umph’s designs?
