Elise Cakebread is an Object Therapy design repairer.
She is a Melbourne based textile-based artist and designer who founded the textile studio Cakebread in 2013.
Her practice is driven by experimentation and exploration within traditional textile processes and techniques. Driven by experimentation within traditional textile processes and techniques, her work focuses on the tensions created by the unusual or unexpected contrasts that emerge between materials, forms, colours, textures and scale. Through these methods she explores ideas of materiality, tactility, craft, disposability and the ornamental. Her cross-disciplinary approach gives life to sculptural work, decorative objects, products and soft furnishings.
