sketchbook project

I have been invited to participate in the ‘sketchbook project’ with 20 artists in Australia – the books will be exhibited at Charles Sturt University Gallery in Sept/Oct before being sent off to join the official sketchbook project touring exhibition  in Brooklyn.  This is an exciting adventure to be part of with more than 30,000 sketchbooks  collected and toured since the project began.

the books are slightly smaller than A5 – these drawings all began life in my weekly life drawing sessions and apologies for the slight moire, blurriness on some pages this is the scanner and not wanting to flatten book too much.

youspeak/ilisten(sometimes)

when this vessel went into the fire I was less than happy with the form – but now that she has been spruced up a bit – a brightening with some acrylic paint, some papermache added to her headpiece and the final sealing of sections with encaustic … she started to speak to me youspeak/ilisten(sometimes) youspeak_ilisten2 youspeak_ilisten4 handbuilt terracotta – slip, underglaze, stained, acrylic, papermache and encustic

embroidered dreams/manufactured realities

Had a pretty good week this week – some of the work fired will be useable for exhibiting next year (that is a plus) a kiln full of rubbish might be a bit disheartening;  and I managed to complete several pages in a small sketchbook for the ‘the sketchbook project’ that will be exhibited here in australia before heading off overseas to join the touring group.

The other good news is that I have had my ‘chameleon recruits’ selected for the gold coast international ceramic award in september – this is fantastic !!!
