Where does the name come from?
When we were thinking of a name we wanted something unique. Ian, an avid music connoisseur, was reading a book on harmonics and the chapter title was “Half and a Third”. Something in that just struck a cord (😅) with us and we kept finding parallels with the name and our life - Katey is one of three kids, Ian is one of two kids, we liked to say we’re half of each other and our dog is the third. Now that our baby Kali arrived she may take over the "third" title - sorry Sofie!
Born with a hammer in hand, I have always been surrounded by builders and makers. Seeking inspiration through nature and architecture, I work with found objects and reclaimed materials to create one of a kind objects that are equal parts form and function.
