Fink alternative jug project

Fink alternative jug project

The FINK Collaborative Jug Project pays homage to the late Robert Foster, designer and founder of FINK & Co, who was tragically killed in a car accident in 2016 and is deeply missed. FINK has a long history of collaborating, mentoring and supporting fellow artists, designers and craftspeople.

Fifteen creatives were chosen for this project, all of whom have had a direct connection to Robert and/or FINK over the 27 years of the company’s history. The designers have been tasked with responding to this iconic Australian design object in the manner of their own choosing, informed by their personal practice. Each designer was provided with two blank FINK jugs with which to begin. The first set of jugs were sold by online auction to raise funds for charity. A second set of the finished bespoke artworks created for this collaboration will be on display for a Craft ACT exhibition.
