About Goose and Bug
Meet the Maker
Welcome to the colourful and creative land of Goose and Bug!
I’m Kate - a farmer’s wife, mum to two gorgeous cherubs (our ‘Goose’ and ‘Bug’) and a lover of all things bright and colourful!
I love wearing brilliantly bold colours and completing my outfits with an explosion of bright ear candy and layers of chunky, statement necklaces!
Growing up in Melbourne, I studied Fine Arts and majored in Ceramic Design. I followed my passion for several years designing and producing functional and sculptural ceramics, holding gallery exhibitions and delivering private commissions.
Fast forward 15 years and I met and married my cheeky farmer and am living and loving life on the land in country Victoria.
When our littlest ‘Bug’ was 6 months old, the creative pull of designing, self-expression and love of colour led me to create whimsical and uniquely handmade polymer clay earrings. (And was a welcome reprieve from changing nappies and sterilising bottles!).
Based in North East Victoria, I create all Goose and Bug designs in my home studio, with the signature pieces designed to be bright and bold with pops of colour!
Just like my blonde, curly hair, my Goose and Bug creations are a bit wild, untamed, fun and playful!
Thanks for popping in. Stay a while, grab a cuppa and enjoy the colourful world of Goose and Bug! x
