Flick through the January edition of Silver, Perth's fashion and lifestyle mag, and on page 69 you will come across a rather enormous photo of me. Then a six page spread with photos taken in my studio and an article about my work. All very exciting! Silver is in your local newsagent now and only costs $5.95. It is a lovely mag edited (and mostly written) by Kristen Watts. I feel most privileged to be featured - thanks Kristen.

Somerville Beauties

These beautiful plates were made by my year 10 Art students.
They were made with BRT clay and have a layer of white slip, then coloured slips with a clear glaze. They drew flowers from life as inspiration for their designs.

I hope their mums love them as much I do :)

Bazaar 09

Two entries in one day! I thought last week was busy, but at least I still had time to blog about it! This week has been so crammed full of studio time that if it wasn't for my husband and daughter helping around the house, things would be in a bad way around here! I managed to finish the reports for school, produce another 200 Christmas decorations, have my hair cut, attend the playgroup committee wind up, finish the Ardross tiles, grout the pre-primary tiles (with some mums from school), glaze and fire the pre-primary angels, re-number work for bazaar (thanks to mum), set up for Bazaar, spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Bazaar, string up 200 decorations (up to 1am Friday night with David), throw, turn and handle 39 mugs and and and... Anyway here are some photos of the bazaar set up.

We had a great weekend. Thank you to all our wonderful customers.

crazy mugs

The things you do...

I have been feeling guilty over the last year because lots of my dear friends have been asking me to make mugs. So finally I have, but it's been so crazy around here that the only time I seem to have to make them has been very early in the morning and the middle of the night - told you - crazy!

Tonight I put them in the kiln (slightly wet, might I add) crossed my fingers and turned it on. I have to fit in a bisque and glaze firing before my studio open on Sunday.

Here they are whispering to each other that they are too wet to be in the kiln yet....
