I love to tell stories about things that matter. I find myself constantly asking questions; why are they here, how does it work? who made it? why did they do it? and I find that what often comes back is an array of wonderful stories that inspire us all to keep moving and keep creating. Behind every small business is a dreamer who said this can be done differently and I want to do it. My goal as a visual storyteller is to connect the creator with people who get them, who want to join their tribe and support their venture.
Flitch & Leaven was created through a love for slow and natural fermentation, smoking, curing and low 'n' slow. But most of all, it was born out of love for simplicity. No shortcuts, no chemicals, no compromise.
"Working with clay has taught me to savour the everyday moments that bring joy. It also ignited a passion to create beautiful pieces that help others gather, share and nourish. This heartfelt intention goes into every piece I make, hoping to spark joy in your life." - Simone
"I’d love to share with you my tiny garden as I grow along side it. There’s pointers, thoughts and hopefully some inspiration. Please, stay a while. Look around and get to know me – I am based in Perth, Western Australia."
