a few more sales

yesterday I took part in a stall held by the Port Hacking Potters Group at the local hospital.
We donate to the hospital and they supply the tables in the foyer while we supply the table cloths and shelves etc.

The sales are not great at the moment as there are building works going on and there is only a drop-off point near the foyer, no actual parking so most people enter via the back door which is closer to a parking area.

Still, we all sold some pots and one of our members gained a commission for more of her wacky mugs which are decorated to look like cars.

Amongst the ones I sold was this little tealight holder.  The person buying them bought several other pieces from the stall, all of them green!

Successful Auction

the art auction I took part in was very successful with almost 60 pieces of art donated and $5232 raised for the country town of Murwillumbah NSW.

The winning bidder for my piece should be receiving the bowl in the post this week.

Thanks to all who took part and especially to those who made a bid for my bowl.

Art Auction 22 April 2017

Wheel thrown and altered porcelain bowl with tissue print decoration, clear glaze. Fired to stoneware. H. 3.7cm W. 15cm - suitable for keeping your jewellery or for sweets or snacks.

I posted a photo of this small bowl on Facebook and Instagram and people seemed to like it so I have decided to donate it to a charity auction.  The auction is being run online by potters but there will be all sorts of art works available.

If you think you might like to own this bowl or another art work and help the victims of recent flooding in the NSW North Coast town of Murwillumbah then please Like the Facebook page and join in the bidding next weekend. Saturday 22 April 2017.

Here is the link to the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ArtAuctiontoAssistMurwillumbahFloodAppeal/?fref=nf

So I'm hoping to see the back of my bowl after the auction (a little joke there)

The postage within Australia is free.

Please support this wonderful event.  One of the organisers grew up in the area but now lives in Qld and I have a link to the area too as one of my aunts lived near there for many years and I have a pottery Facebook friend in the area too.

#SaturdayShelfie - 8 April

Over on the Facebook group, Anna's Aussie Ceramics, we have a thing going where members post a pic of something of their own work - this is my contribution today.

The bowl is wheel thrown using Porcelain Paperclay then altered while still on the wheel.  The decoration is on leather hard clay before the bisque firing.  A clear glaze and then fired to Cone 10 or around 1280 degrees Celsius.

Enjoy your Saturday wherever you are today.

Retail selection

From time to time I have some pots available at a small home design boutique in a nearby suburb.

I called by today with some new pots and was pleased to find I had had a sale.

These pourers and the vase  are now available at Fred & Co if you know someone looking for a gift.
