My work is meant to put a smile on your face. I like to create works that are bright, colourful and evoke feelings. I experiment with my mediums working across paint, collage and sculpture.

FOUR SEEDS, SA

For some of the best chocolate brownies, cakes and sweets around, Four Seeds is a sweet tooth’s little piece of heaven. We caught up with founder and baker extraordinaire Mim Gollan, to discover more about the flavoursome delight that is Four Seeds.

 

For those who don’t know, how would you describe your work?

Two words — chocolate brownies. Or four words — salted caramel chocolate brownies. Or, if you (like me) have coeliacs, or an intolerance to gluten, then you’ll want to hear six words — gluten free, salted caramel chocolate brownies (but don’t tell the gluten lovers – they’ll never guess). Four Seeds’ retro kitchen cupboard pops up at events and festivals around Adelaide, serving up soul-nourishing chocolate brownies and a range of other small sweets. I have a couple of feeding philosophies, first and foremost that sweet treats should be satisfying, and second that even people with …

 For those who don’t know, how would you describe your work? 

Primarily my work consists of contemporary etched and coloured (anodised) titanium jewellery. Titanium colours amazingly though anodising (an electrical process where voltage is used to change the surface of titanium without dyes or additives). It is also very strong, lightweight and hypoallergenic. Perfect for jewellery, especially those with allergies. I translate fragile and delicate natural forms into long lasting and strong pieces in titanium.

 

How did the your jewellery journey begin? Who or what inspired you to start? 

If you want to go WAY back… I guess my journey started with a bit of entrepreneurial spirit, a gourmet weekend …
