so enjoyable

The weather around here was just awful today, worse than our worst during winter, snow on the Blue Mtns, wind and rain.  Despite all that my wonderful husband braved the roads and took me to see an exhibition in Paddington by my friend Sadhana Peterson and her talented family, the Donaldson's.

The rain paused while we walked up the street to where the gallery is tucked away, and waited until we were back in our car before teeming down again.

As you can see from their flyer, a really multi talented family and their works all just 'jell' as a group exhibition.

They shared the red dots around and it was so pleasing to see Sadhana's innovative pots, combined with woven materials, being appreciated.

This one titled " Ode to Spotted Gum"

was my favourite:
"Ode to Spotted Gum" ceramic and woven fibres by Sadhana Peterson 2012
 these pit fired pots would be my second favourites, although those others on Sadhana's blog were great too..
"Talking Trees" pit fired ceramics by Sadhana Peterson 2012



















it was a nice space on two levels, somewhere to keep in mind if you are looking for a gallery that will allow you to curate your own show.

by the time we were driving home the weather was starting to clear but still rough water on Botany Bay

I have some work in a kiln at the Port Hacking Potters that should be bisqued if the kiln fired OK after some initial hiccups after its move - should be able to open it tomorrow.

I'm also slowly drying a replacement pig sculpture...
and back on the wheel at my TAFE class where we will be using the shellac and wash back technique so will need to get drawing....
but first off to Mud Colony ....
