as a philosophy, this practice is a sub-category from the Japanese philosophy of , an embracing the flawed or imperfect.
Things are made more beautiful for showing the wears of time. This practice treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
The first Sorry Day was held in 1998, one year after the landmark Bring Them Home Report was first tabled in Parliament.
To remember this history, watch this powerful video of survivors of the stolen generations on their journey to recognition and this ABC story (warning - this video contains upsetting footage of politicians denying responsibility for the stolen generations, and images of people who may have passed away).
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are survivors of intergenerational trauma from having children stolen by the Australian Government, and growing up as a stolen generation, ripped away from culture, language, law, Nation and family.
Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd apologised for the Stolen Generations in 2008. Families finally received national recognition of the atrocity they suffered.
But saying ‘Sorry’ is not enough. Generations are still being stolen.
A 2020 Family Matters report found that 20,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children were living in out-of-home care.
A disturbing 81% of these Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children were placed in ‘permanent care’ and never reunited with their birth parents.
Sorry must come with systemic change, truth telling, historical justice and adequate reparations. We must stop history from repeating itself.
This week, stand with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nations for Justice and Treaty by taking action.

Join Family Matters to take action and stand up for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

Presenting, Katrina Carling from Unearthed Ceramics.
'I am very interested in interiors and architecture, very aware of people’s spaces and when they function successfully - my goal is to make pieces that are authentic and that make people love them. It’s truly a gift to be able to craft with my own two hands.'
In a world of mass consumerism, it's the little changes we can make in our purchasing behaviour that can truly create positive affects in our local communities.
As the world continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences, it is all the more important that we reaffirm our support for all le***an, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people on this International Day.
During this period there is a risk of the situations of discrimination, harassment and violence, particularly domestic violence, faced by LGBTI people being exacerbated. Younger people in particular, because of the persistence of prejudice in their family or social environment, are sometimes threatened with being driven out of their homes and finding themselves in distress or destitution. Furthermore, as the work of voluntary organizations is more complex, LGBTI people are likely to lack contacts and trusted people to talk to.
It is therefore the duty of the international community - as well as, more broadly, of each and every one of us - to reaffirm the humanist principles in which we believe.
All LGBTI people have the right to respect and dignity regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity - in all circumstances.
Despite the progress made in recent decades, these principles are not yet unanimously shared. Millions of LGBTI people remain discriminated against, stigmatized, harassed and psychologically and/or physically abused.
The fight against these prejudices and discriminations will be won in minds; it is thus a long-term project, which will also have to make space for educational and awareness-raising activities.
Beyond this Day, we know that the mobilization against prejudice will be played out in classrooms and in the media, because that is where we come to understand the complexity of the world; and that is where we must prioritize pushing back against gender stereotyping and hate speech and discrimination.
Let this International Day, once again marked by the pandemic, be an opportunity to renew our collective commitment to defend human rights and to end all forms of homophobic and transphobic discrimination and violence.

Director-General of UNESCO,
Get Comfortable. Find a quiet place where you won't be disturbed.
Get in position. You might try sitting cross-legged on a low cushion on the floor, or upright in a chair.
Get relaxed. Bring your thoughts back to centre.
uses both wheel throwing and hand-building techniques to create minimal ceramic pieces that speak to an elegant simplicity.
Balancing artistic expression with functionality, the handcrafted pieces are custom-made either individually or in small batches.
Curated. Hand picked. Tried and tested. Lived and loved. All by founder and artist Gordana.
Our Earth Mother Artisan - Rebecca Wisby, will be taking some leave and though we are sad to see a hiatus in production...we also are tremendously happy for new beginnings.
What an honour and a blessing.
Wishing you health and happiness Bec
Our most collectable pieces to date. Create your own decorative village - maybe even one for each family member - choose from truly individual and timeless house statues by our very own Judith Hoffmann.
We have carefully selected objects that can withstand daily use while aesthetically grounding one in nature. An appreciation for all things organically beautiful + handmade.
Our Bathroom range is made from truly natural and allergen free ingredients. Taking things back to traditional methods, nothing quite competes with the classics. Offering zero waste alternatives to your bottled varieties.
Ethically mined here on our own soil by independently owned traders. Our Crystals collection are hand picked specimens, chosen for their versatility and natural beauty.
Our beloved NIN RIN range from the Gifu prefecture, Japan, is sadly still behind schedule.
Japan was hit hard with Covid regulations, meaning many businesses were simply not premised to operate.
Now that parameters are lifted, competing gas prices have made kiln production a nightmare for these makers, who are working tirelessly to catch up with demand.
We must be patient, as different parts of the world are struggling with the hangover of the pandemic.
At ACCIDA we will continue to support Made In Japan through this tough period and do our best to keep up with orders already made, but for now will be pausing our services for ordering sets.
Thank you for your understanding.
This bit of Peanut wood began its life as a conifer tree on land in the area now known as Western Australia. When these trees died, rivers carried them into a shallow, salty epicontinental sea that covered much of what is now the Australian continent.
Wabi-Sabi is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.

Hello beautiful doves,
WE ARE MOVING!
It's been a wonderful experience having a space positioned in Eltham - albeit, a temporary one - the opportunity has been amazing and all of us at ACCIDA have enjoyed getting to know you all that little bit better, seeing you face to face (mask to mask).
The time has come for us to move on. So this will be our last month on Bolton street. In the interim we will be exclusively online, however, this will change in the not too distant future.
Thank you so kindly for your ongoing support. We adore each of our makers and patrons so sincerely and it will be sad departure.
We will be holding a moving out sale soon, so please keep your eyes peeled for updates.
We want to thank Endota Spa for accomodating us and Earthbound Bolton for being an ongoing support.
Love from team ACCIDA
We are blown away by this moving piece, always inspiring, preformed by our very own local elven knight Genevieve Callaghan.

You all wished me luck and to 'break a leg' - Whoops!:
As you probably know, the launch of this venture has been a dream come true for me. All the collaboration, support and interest has been utterly inspiring. Unfortunately, a sudden medical emergency (Broken leg!) has taken over this ambition and will require my full attention during recovery.
I have had to make the reluctant call to postpone further progress with ACCIDA until I am back on my feet. As I say to all my artisans 'no deadlines, health, family and life first' I must now practice this myself during these tender times... (yet again!)
I want to assure you all that while there is a delay -there is a plan - and I do so look forward to picking back up when I am healed and able to. In the interim, my partner Chris will be available to look after the shop and take over from me in the limited capacity that he is able to.
Of course you can still take a look at the website,
I do wish you all good health. I look forward to working with you when I am able to return to my feet!
