Hayley Anne Brown talks to Australian Design Review about her winning design in the Sow’s Ear Challenge.

Hayley Anne Brown’s Hooped Pendant is the winning design from the Sow’s Ear Challenge, a design competition presented by Chapman & Bailey and (inside) magazine. Australian Design Review spoke to Hayley about the ideas behind her design and the process of making the finished piece.

The Hooped Light was on show at Design:Made:Trade, at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton (21-24 July 2011) as part of the State of Design Festival.

The Sow’s Ear Challenge asked designers to propose a solution to the everyday waste of timber offcuts produced in the Chapman & Bailey studio, by turning these offcuts into a beautiful furniture or lighting object. Read more about the competition here.
