burdenwithcare- in progress

for the first time in several months I am getting an opportunity to just play in the studio – my next planned exhibition isn’t until the end of 2015 – and although there are some other plans underway – the pressure is off and the there is time to just explore some different aspects of clay and finishes.

burdenwithcare – handbuilt ceramic vessel, engobe, terrasigillata, and underglaze – is waiting for its first firingburdenwithcare burdenwithcare02

and a previous post on ‘tellingmystory‘ whilst waiting for a firing has undergone significant change.  I am looking forward to seeing the alchemy.tellingmystory05 tellingmystory04

tusk gallery opening

fly-in fly-out – a very busy 24 hours but what a great night.  I met up with the owners of tusk gallery Gary and Georgie and their staff Katie and Olivia at the opening. All generous beautiful people doing knock out work – the gallery looked stunning, the opening was in full swing. great music, food and atmosphere.  I was very fortunate to sell a good girl scout – neverleaveshomewithoutherhanky and red (one of the original sirens)

Here is a couple of photos of the chameleonrecruits together for the first time – perhaps a little challenging but certainly telling a story ! Many thanks to Gary and Georgie for offering this great opportunity.  If you are in Melbourne well worth visiting the gallery there is always great viewing.

this will be bisque fired before deciding on the next stages of colouring – a lot could happen between this stage and the final piece.  approx 50 cm tall
