Replenished for Christmas

Today I met with the delightful Limelight Gallery manager, Danielle.

It so nice to be told its exciting to see your new work.

With Christmas not too far away artists were asked to supply some Christmas themed works so I took along some of my porcelain Reindeer Tree Ornaments..

plus some other shapes

A couple of other items as well, so drop by if you are in town - lots of other artists works that would make great gifts.

Thanks to Coraki

Just received the good news that both of my entries in the Coraki Art Prize have sold.

Thank you and I hope they enjoy their new home...

The one on the left is called "Spot and Miss Piggy @ The Breakfast Club Diaries" which is a reference to some real life pigs whose owner posts images of her pigs on the Facebook group by that name.  Click Here for the link.

The one on the right is titled "Free Range" and is a comment on my preference that animals have a good life even if bred for meat.

Facebook Saturday Shelfie

Many of you will know I also am the Administrator for the Facebook Group called Anna's Aussie Ceramics - click here to see.

A Dutch potter used the term 'Shelfie' to describe his image of a collection of pots.  Myself and others loved the term and are now using it as a weekly post we call Saturday Shelfies.

If you are on Facebook jump over and join in.  Your image can be of your collection, your bisque ware, tools, what every you like so long as it sits on a shelf and is pottery related.

Here is mine for this week:

my own wheel thrown bottle with stopper on the left and a sculpture by Ellen Appleby on the right.

Do pop on over and join in the fun..

Off to Coraki

It is a cold and wintery spring day in my suburb today.  Big storms last night with flooding and power outages in suburbs around us.  Fortunately we seemed to have missed the worst. I did put my winter clothes away too soon though.

I went to the post office this morning and sent off two packages to Coraki.

They are my sculptures for the Coraki Art Prize in northern NSW.

One is called Free Range and the other is called, Spot and Miss Piggy @ The Breakfast Club Diaries.

The Breakfast Club Diaries is a Facebook Group where the members post images from their morning walks and the owner of Spot and Miss Piggy often posts pictures of her pigs.

Here is a preview of  my interpretation...

"Free Range"  Handformed on wheel thrown base.  Stoneware clay, terrasiggalata, sawdust fired. 2015

"Spot and Miss Piggy @ The Breakfast Club Diaries"  Hand formed on wheel thrown base. Stoneware clay, underglaze, tissue prints and glazes.

Travel well little pigs.
