With a childhood spent sailing the world on his family's boat and a stint living in Brazil it is no wonder the ocean and cross cultures are a constant source of inspiration for Jai's bold designs where he layers vibrant coloured paints with photographic prints and patterns on ceramic pieces including his famous crucifixes and portholes.
Besides the Martinique cushion currently adorning my couch, the crucifixes are a favourite of mine and currently at the top of my wish list. Adorned with feathers, shells and splashes of neon, these eclectic pieces are a true melting pot of Central/South American and Polynesian flavours with a modern twist.
Apart from being stocked at a number of designer retailers nationally Jai has created his own retail haven with his popular Byron Bay store Ahoy Trader, a bowerbird's nest of Australian homewares and fashion designers who share Jai's colourfully unique design aesthetics.
