Local Brisbane husband and wife team Ash and Ben Keily have taken a homegrown business of painting pots and opened their first Arc + Family store. After a massive few months of preparation, they have finally opened their beautiful, big Fortitude Valley store on the iconic James Street, sharing the new space with amazing artist and friend A Boy Named Aaron who creates stunning ceramic wall hangings, art, and homewares.

The couple is passionate about what they do – they say that on most nights they’ll still be in the studio painting until the early hours, sipping on tea and listening to the radio. All of the Arc + Family pots are touched up by hand, with Ash and Ben taking their time to get them perfect before sealing, so they really are functional works of art.
Now is the perfect time to start thinking about ways to dress up our interiors and outdoor spaces, and we think these hand painted beauties are just the ticket to adding colour and personality to the home. Be sure to pop in store and check out the Arc + Family collection.
