Visiting Teapots and a new Ceramics Workshop Studios space

I had a lovely day last week visiting my new friend, Amanda Bromfield in her temporary studio space which is a part of the new facility
 called Kil-n-It in Glebe.

Entrance and Admin Office

Supported by the City of Sydney this facility has been up and running for a very short few weeks but wasting no time, the organisers, Rachael McCallum, Bev Shroot and Glenn Barkley  are off and running.  Both have exhibitions about to open and the other artists are all producing work already. (click on names to go to their own websites).

It is proposed the facility will be able to run "Artist in Residence" programs and workshops.
the new workshop has some great equipment including a good slab roller which was donated

Congratulations to the team that has managed to produce this wonderful facility so close to the centre of  Sydney.

It was still cool enough for a lunch of soup at a nearby cafe and later I walked back to the Inner City Clayworkers Gallery so I could vote for my favourite teapot for the People's Choice Award.

It was nice to see a red dot on my Jaune Fleur De Cone teapot, front right on the plinth of four in this image taken on opening night.

My entries in The Shire Teapot Section - Inner City Clayworkers Sydney Teapot Show 2015 are the two larger ones.

My 'Shire' teapots of a Hobbit house theme are still for sale unless they have found a new home over the weekend.  That would be nice.

Each of my teapots have matching tea-bowls and the more colourful Shire teapot also has a matching tea caddy.

It was very hard to choose a favourite for the People's Choice... I wonder who will win this year.  It won't be announced until the end of the Show.

Hi Linda
Thank you, fingers crossed. The show has a little longer to run. Yes the space is great.. they are doing some very innovative stuff.
