Goodbye 2021

 Well, we survived another year of the pandemic.. here is hoping for a better year for the world in 2022.

I hope you and your families have got through with as little drama as possible and your good health intact.

We are having a rather wet summer which makes for a nice change after recent years of drought and bushfire.  I am giving my studio  a bit of a clean and sorting out my clay.  Combining scraps and recycling and labelling the buckets so I have a better idea of what is there.  Washing out the plastic clay bags ready for reuse. Almost done.  Waiting for some scraps to dry out but it is a wet week so I can't quite complete the task yet. Once I'm done I'll then have to break that barrier of not wanting to spoil the clean and tidy look.  

Here are some memories from 2021and my best wishes for you and your families in 2022.

The Australian Brooch Show had an interrupted showing but managed to proceed and happily my turtle and fish both sold.

My commission for the Year of the Ox was well received.

Another commission for 30 condiment dishes had me throwing off the hump, a technique I had not used for years.

A very successful Pop Up Shop with the Port Hacking Potters Group, held at the Cronulla School of Arts saw these all off to new homes.

And over on my Instagram page, @potterybyanna, it would seem these were my most popular posts for 2021.

Take care everyone but enjoy each day as it comes along and find something of beauty in the ordinary.
 Here is to a happy and healthy New Year for you all.
