This little book is a concertina calligraphy book. The pages are Chinese watercolour paper and you can see from the size of the writing pen next to it.
As part of my drawing module I filled the book with a combination of watercolour, goauche and ink brush drawings. The flowers are all Australian natives and grow in my garden. The colour and ink drawings alternate so if the book is spread out, looking one way they are all colour and then the other way all black and white!

A sample of the completed medallions...
Clay rolled and cut out to design by Aussie Anna, firing and decals by Joyce (formerly USA) to then be mailed to Gary, temporary resident of Ireland to then be taken to Germany for the Karneval 2009! Whew! Sure hope they arrive safely :)
