New @ The Olive Tree Market

The first Olive Tree for 2016 will feature some talented new makers including Tom Kearney of Frontier Scout Resin Ware

Through fifteen years working and exhibiting as an artist Tom says that he “developed a fascination with resin as an artistic medium of seemingly endless potential” The philosophy behind Frontier Scout is to create unique, one-off pieces that blur the line between functional objects and art. Each piece is sculpted, moulded, sanded and polished, by hand, in a purpose built studio.

Make sure to visit Frontier Scout at Olive Tree on February 6th in Civic Park!
