“Always have a dream... stick
to your beliefs & never think
it is too late for new
After many years
of travel and adventure we have come across so many clever and
creative people from so many different walks of life and backgrounds.
These journeys have resulted in us wanting to share and represent
these people in our creative home ...THE PEAR HOUSE.
The Pear House is committed to supporting emerging artists, as well as
believing in the global value of craft and community. We actively
build relationships with our artists and suppliers to make sure our
customers are offered a shopping experience of pleasure and
inspiration, as an alternative to mass produced and highly
manufactured goods. We plan to continue many life adventures and
search out interesting and unique pieces from artists and designers,
whilst also providing gifts and home wares that are representative of
our product philosophy.
THE PEAR HOUSE was not the original name of our planned venture. We
had spent many years researching artists and products that we wanted
to represent in our retail adventure, however a few months prior to
opening our store we came across an inspiring sculptor who had created
the most magnificent 2mtr pear, shaped from old horse
shoes. His work was so inspiring, not just for what we saw, but how it
came about. As a Riverina farmer for over 40 years, he experienced
many years of drought and as a way of lifting he and his family out of
the dust and desperate times he put his hand to a vision he had
carried around in his head for years. This resulted in him giving life
back to used paddock and farming materials and creating AMAZINGLY
UNIQUE sculptures for the home and garden.
Not only did we love his story but felt the pear represented so many
wonderful sensations in life – taste, touch, smell and vision – hence
THE PEAR HOUSE was named!
Over the years we have gone from a permanent retail store to now
becoming more focused on what our customers want, by providing our
wares at reasonable prices, via our website as well as giving a more
personalised experience at our studio in the rural setting of Matcham.
We also participate in various markets around the Central Coast
region. If we do not have what you are looking for, we can show you
the many products available to us via our designers and suppliers.
Alternatively, if you're not sure where to put those special pieces
from the Pear House we can also help there, with the services of our
own qualified Interior Decorator.
