In this image the illustration appears to be black, however it is in fact a dark green...
It is based on an Australian native plant which has edible fruit... will have to come back to you on which one...
Next time I will use a darker green underglaze for the border..

Here we are in September and still in lockdown here in Sydney and now the regional areas of the state are in lockdown too...
So to keep busy I have been putting some of my jewellery pieces together in the hope I will get to sell them.. maybe just before Christmas??

I was working towards an entry in the Port Hacking Potters National Competition but unfortunately it has been cancelled.. Due to Covid restrictions in Sydney the gallery has closed and with it unclear as to when it could reopen the decision was made to cancel. The committee couldn't risk pots from other states being left in limbo. It is possible the group will stage a members only show a bit later, so another door opens.

I have been having some fun back at TAFE the last few Saturdays. I am undertaking a Master Class with Julie Bartholomew who truly is a Master of the unexpected.
She is a great teacher and I am hoping the short course will inspire me for an art work to enter in the Port Hacking Potters National Competition later this year...One of the things we have been doing is dipping dry plant matter in porcelain slip and then firing them.. such interesting results.

Hi everyone, I hope the New Year is starting with you all in good health as we look towards a vaccine becoming available.
Before starting to make again I have been playing with jewellery pieces I have stashed away.

This afternoon I helped to pack up the PopUp shop that I was part of with my local pottery group, the Port Hacking Potters Group. I hardly had anything to bring home which was a very nice end to what has been such a difficult year for so many of us.
Thank you to those who purchased my work so that I can now decide what to make before our next sale event.
It is so encouraging when your work sells not to mention the bank balance.
So here are a few of my favourite pieces that sold.. and a very Merry Christmas to you all. May 2021 be a happy and healthy one for us all.

Luckily I am well stocked with clay and glazes and can keep myself busy. The one drawback is that my studio is rather cold and shaded but I rug up with a extra layer of clothes and a hat and I'm doing more handbuilding than wheel work.
I have been able to sell some of my smaller pieces online via my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/AnnasCeramics/
and my Instagram account: @potterybyanna
I also have another commission to work on and the possibility of being part of a community exhibition later in the year.
I hope all of my followers are keeping well. Here are some pieces that sold recently:
A destash of buttons...
|Percival has found a new home in the country|
|this Saddleback guy is with new friends in a suburban home|
|these bowls were delivered to a nearby suburb|
So I am trying to adapt and stay well. All the best out there.

The border restrictions due to Covid19 on movement of people between NSW and Qld are still in place at the moment.
Fortunately I am able to get to the post office to send off this commissioned teapot. I hope it's new owner enjoys it.
