CAT and dog-shaped cof­fee ta­bles by fur­ni­ture artist Re­nata Carmichael are among a show­case of items for sale at the an­nual De­signed:Made 2017 mar­ket in Ho­bart.

About 30 de­sign­ers and mak­ers in­clud­ing jewellers and ce­ramists joined Ms Carmichael at the Town Hall yes­ter­day and will re­turn to­day.

Ms Carmichael spe­cialises in an­i­mal-themed fur­ni­ture.

A cat shaped ta­ble “In the Bal­ance” is made from marine ply and hoop pine and is on the mar­ket, while the dogshaped ta­ble of Tas­ma­nian Oak can be cus­tom made.

“It was scorched with a blow­torch to get the colour,” she said.

Other de­sign­ers and mak­ers in­clude print­mak­ers and peo­ple work­ing with fab­ric.

Ms Carmichael stud­ied at the Tas­ma­nian School of Art in Hunter St in 2005 and has been ply­ing her trade ever since.
