Love positive feedback

I have some of my pieces in the Limelight Gallery which was set up to promote the work of graduating art and design students of the Sydney Institute of TAFE and was delighted when told my Christmas Tree Hangers sold (all but three).
similar decorations to this sold at the Limelight Gallery - hand cut fine porcelain slabs decorated with tissue prints and high fired in an electric kiln.

Apparently they were used as corporate gifts and I was thrilled to receive emails from two of the recipients to say how much they loved them.  It is so nice of them to take the time to contact me.

Recently we have had visitors from Germany and they gave us some sweet little decorations made of straw, a traditional craft.
Here are a couple on this little ornamental Christmas Tree which I set up for my Dad.

I hope your preparations for Christmas are going well.  I haven't started my cards yet so best get going ...

A Facebook gift and some sales

Recently my Facebook Group, Anna's Aussie Ceramics reached 500 Likers, not huge by Facebook standards but a milestone non the less.

When I mentioned this milestone was coming up a supplier in South Australia, by the name of Interdec Australia,  offered to have a give away for the 500th Liker.

Not only that but also sent me some glaze colourant!  Yay!
It arrived in the post and so now I just have to get my kiln up and running and I can start testing it.

It looks like a fabulous red.

Then to add to my happy week, the Gallery which is stocking some of my work, Limelight Gallery in the city sold all but 3 of my Christmas Tree Hangers and asked for more.

I took along the few I had left plus some button sets and a thrown condiment set.

Condiment set consists of two bowls and a platter.  All wheel thrown, underglaze decoration with Blue Chun glaze

I'm hoping for good weather for the stall in Cronulla Mall tomorrow, Sunday 7 December, 9am to 3pm.  Call by and say hello if you are in the area.

Stormy weather please hold off on Sunday

We are having lots of storms of an evening this week. Another one rolling around as I type...

I have my fingers crossed that we have some nice weather on Sunday as I'll be taking part in a stall at Cronulla Mall with others from the Port Hacking Potters Group.

Today I put together a couple of new bracelets and a pendant on a leather necklace with matching earrings to replace those I sold at the last one..

Call on by and say "Hi" on Sunday 7 December from 9am to 3pm..
