My Nest in the burbs

My little house is coming together at last. It had a lick of white paint over the holidays and is being filled up with my recent pottery works. The image on the bottom right shows three of my latest pots from the Raku firing. The yellow table in the top right is a bit of a DIY job on a garage sale table. Bottom left is a bit of a view of my little kitchen and top left is a couple of my pottery projects on display by the pond out the front.
I will try to get some more photos during the day while the light is better over the weekend so keep posted.

Raku Firing in Toodyay

I am lucky enough to teach a wonderful pottery class at the Perth Studio Potters in Cottesloe. This weekend we visited the breath taking property of Caroline and Lachlan in Gidge where we took part in a Raku Firing.

We enjoyed a shared lunch of homemade roast pumpkin soup, mulled wine, crusty bread and salad followed by home baked apple crumble, cheese cake and cupcakes.

Everyone had success with their pots and enjoyed the sensational late winter day. Thanks to Caroline and Lachlan for having us.

A few of the Art Ed'ers met down at the lovely Gen Baker's property at Toodyay and took part in the pit firing. We used iron and copper oxide, banana peels, copper wire, salt and string to create the markings. Although it poured with rain all night the firing was a great success!
There will be an article in the next Art Ed Journal with loads of photos of the lovely pots created.
