Form & Fable

Grass bowl by Form and Fable

Form & Fable is the creative collaboration between designers Mark Buntzen and Kate McIntyre. Based in Auckland, the pair are focused on creating high quality, handmade homewares; this quality is achieved through late nights, early starts, lots of sandpaper and eye squinting attention to detail which the pair believes translates to unique pieces you'll love.

Originally from South Africa, Mark's work is focused on minimalist designs out of wood and other materials. His work often has a slight Scandinavian sensibility.

Kate’s practice is focused on ceramics, and she works extensively with porcelain and hand carving. Her work often exhibits a strong, distinctive, graphic style and is inspired by natural geometry. Kate slip casts vessel forms, and then finishes the objects by hand, cutting patterns into the surface of the forms. The process of hand carving transforms each object into an original piece with its own unique pattern.
