A passion that celebrates a connection to life, in all its forms
Big Mumma’s Creations, the story behind the brand
My friends and family appreciate my creations, because I only use ethically sourced Tasmanian timbers, also because I work closely with several other Tasmanian businesses. People like the idea that a mum has crafted these functional and unique tools.
My young (2 years-old) niece passed away after succumbing to a brain tumour, I wanted to find something to focus my energy, and as a means of coping with grief. I quickly rediscovered a my craft, and found how refocussing that energy translated to a passion for working with the natural beauty of different timbers. I could actually see my healing process through the finished product. And I knew I had discovered something within myself that came from a connection to life, and celebrating life, in all its forms.
