Still tossing shrimp - BBQ classics.
Paul Hogan made tossing shrimp on the barbie a part of our culture and the Wiltshire Bar B Tongs are what most of us use to do it. Designed by industrial designer Wally Tench, during the early days of the Outerspace Design Group, the tongs are still in production. Wally was in my year at RMIT and Mark Johnson was one year a head of us. Wally, Mark and Fred Blochlinger all worked together at Christopher Collins Associates before embarking on the journey to Outerspace.
