My name is Jessica and I am the designer and maker behind MATTE&GLOSS. 

I have a background in Interior Design with my specialty being Hospitality Design. MATTE&GLOSS began in 2015 and is an extension of my interiors work. I am influenced by the rules of simplicity, elegance and functionality to create timeless pieces for the home. Back in 2016, my first design 'BLOCK BOWL' was selected to be part of Workshopped 16 - an exhibition celebrating emerging designers, makers and creatives, that have breakthrough products and concepts shaping the future of design.

Shortly after this, I took a longer than expected break from making when I fell pregnant with my first child... then second child... then third child. Now that my family is complete, I am getting back to doing things I love, one of which is getting my hands dirty to create beautiful pieces.

During my 'time off', I opened an online Mum & Baby store celebrating local products from small businesses. I also couldn't stay away from making, and while heavily pregnant with my second child, I had the idea to design Personalised Christmas Baubles which unexpectedly became popular and loved by many families all over the world. I have brought these baubles over to MATTE&GLOSS as the first product of the relaunch, soon to be followed by handmade homewares and gifts.

MATTE&GLOSS will continue to grow and develop as seasons and ideas change. I am so excited to be doing something I am passionate about again, and cannot wait to create for you.

Thank you for supporting my small biz, as well as my family and local design.
