Denz & Co are a husband and wife team who create enamel and recycled steel earrings and wall hangings.
Kate’s style has evolved through her art and design background, over the years developing a number of creative businesses. After spending the last few years in the digital world it was time to pick up the tools again. Denz + co named by her 11yr old son Denzil who is lovingly called Denz.
Her love of working with metal and wood started long ago in her dad’s workshop, but it wasn’t until she discovered the art of enamelling that it became a true passion.
All pieces are handcrafted in a studio in the Noosa Hinterland, Queensland Australia; the copper is cut by hand, so every piece is different. The multiple layers of enamel glass are fused to the copper in a kiln, giving them depth and warmth. . The recycled steel earrings are made in Australia from Kates drawings and are plated in Melbourne. They are statement but very lightweight.
Luke Bordessa the more level headed member of the Denz team, is chief of distribution, sales, accounts, stock control and all things sensible.
